Emergency routing

Thanks for looking in.
I am setting up a dual Herbie return system and have a question about the Emergency drain routing.
Since this drain is basically used for emergency overflow situations, I want to let 1 line flow into the Sump chamber which is right below that line and the other one that is closer to the fuge chamber flow to the fuge.Is there any reason this wouldn't work?
Appreciate. it.

Sounds good to me. So long as the emergency drains keep the water in your system and off your floor. I imagine it could go anywhere in your sump, hell even the return section if you needed it to..
