Leak Around Main Water Line

Hello. I noticed probably about three months ago during a large winter melt that there was water leaking in around the main water line in to my house. I probably should have done something then, but was dumb and waited. Well, this weekend we have gotten quite a large quantity of rain and it is happening again.

It is not the main water line leaking, but the seal around it letting ground water in to the house. Is there anything I can do to seal it inside or would something need to be done on the outside of the foundation?

If you need any more information please let me know. Thanks in advance for any advice.
