Main water shutoff


I took off the cover today to see how far down the valve was to shut off my water to the house and when I looked down with a flashlight, I couldn't see anything. It looked like the pipe / access going down curved a little at the bottom. Any thoughts on what I'm looking at here? I wanted to see how far down it went before getting a water key. Thanks.

Post your location. it will be below the frost line. My outside shutoff is about 5 feet down.

I'm in PA. Can you see anything when you access yours?
