Tricky overflow situation

Hey to all the DIYers out there !
I just moved in a new house where the owner left a ~300gal tank with all the equipment (I know bummer ).
There are three 3" pipe that go through the bottom of the tank and through the stand (one is shown in the attachments). There are three of these one at each end and another in the middle. My question is : how would you setup an overflow for a sump in those conditions ? I was maybe thinking of using one of them for full siphon and another for an emergency overflow like a Herbie style but split...? Any ideas are welcome !
Thank you !
