Thank you for your responce Ray. Regrading is not an option, the corner the pit is in is flanked by my apshalt driveway on one side and my brick patio on the other. Drilling a few holes is one idea I did not think of. There is already a good deal of sand in the bottom of the pit and I am a little worried about further erosion. It took me a long time to figure out where the water was actually coming from since the remainder of the basement is dry. It appears that the other sump was moved about three feet, I don't know when or why though.
