valve box full of water

Hello - I have an issue with valve box flooding and I need some ideas on the best way to fix it. My box is set into the ground and fills completely with rain and when a nearby head operates. I'm thinking that I need to dry the box out, remove it then dig under the control valves about 8-12" and backfill with small gravel for proper drainage and reinstall the box. This is my first irrigation system so I'm learning as I go with repairs and maintenance issues. Thanks in advance for all the help and any other ideas are greatly appreciated!!!
