Outdoor pipe leaking

I just noticed that an outdoor pipe is leaking (from the rusty "Vent" part at the bottom of the picture). Any suggestions how to fix this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

That looks like the water supply check valve to an underground sprinkler system. Since you're in a cold zone that system needed to be shutoff and all the water lines blown out.

If you hadn't done that.... something there may have frozen and cracked.
If you had winterized..... it sounds like the inside water shutoff is not shutting the water source off completely.
