crawl space door

I have a crawl space door that is below grade and when it rains water comes in the crawl and there is about 4 to 5 inches of water standing in the crawl. What can I do to fix this problem?

Build a removable cap over the access pit and regrade the surrounding ground to slope away from the house in all directions. If you don't have the ability to regrade, then a drainage system around the house will collect and redistribute the water. Also make sure that downspouts are directed out and away from the house.
