Sump Pump Discharge - Should I DIY this?

Hey Guys :)

I am new to your forum but love that there is a place I can find advice and tips.

Currently I have an issue with my house and the thawing of the ice on my lawn. It is causing my sump pump to discharge every half an hour or so. I am not sure if that is an issue but its causing the water to flow all over my front lawn and into the house via the basement.

Does anyone have a suggestion for me? Should I attach a pipe and run it to the street?
