If this location is part of the watershed of a nearby public waterway, permitting may or may not be required for the installation of an overflow.
That is my thinking. If you think that a drainage system needs to be in place drail tile running the lengh out the far end with the pipe day lighted out would be my suggestion. Looking at the slope I agree that I don't think any drainage is needed.
