Sprinkler turned on for 10 minutes when the system off

My water sprinkler system has 3 zones. We have not turned on water for 3 years to the sprinklers but today morning 3 of my sprinklers in one zone turned on for about 10 minutes and then turned off. It is a bit weird as water has been shut off to the system... ?(

Is the timer plugged in? Unplug it until you're ready to use your sprinklers again.
If it happens again then the valve needs attention. The water's obviously back on. Sometimes a gardener will fiddle with things. Maybe it was never shut off, you just thought it was.
