The curved piece on the ground broke but used to connect the pipe to the gutter within Park Ridge. I think the black corrugated pipe goes back in the house but just curious if anyone knows why this setup and if I can just put a gutter extension on the gutter and cap off the black corrugated pipe. Seems silly to connect the gutter to it the black corrugated pipe

Does it carry water away from your foundation when hooked up?

Park Ridge floods tremendously. My guess is you should reattach the corrugated black one (or replace) as it probably helps divert rain water to prevent overground flooding in your yard

1 comes from your pump and the other from the gutter both bringing water farther away from your house, fix it don’t cap it.

It looks like your rain gutters are being diverted into the sewer but the other corrugated pipe coming out of the house looks like your sump pump ejector. I don’t think you need to connect it back into the ground pipe but you should put an extender to direct it away from your house.
