The relief valve of your reduced pressure back flow assembly is stuck on.

I recommend to get an irrigation company in with certified back flow repair /tester to fix your issue

However if you feel inclined, usually you can take apart the 4 bolts in the middle, take out the relief check, exercise it and put it back in. this may fix it.
