Sump pit installation

Does a sump pit have to be flush with concrete? I am installing a large rolled top basin (24x36) to accommodate two sump pumps. However, I can't dig any deeper so it will protrude 4 inches above the floor. Is this a code violation?

Trip hazard maybe but not a code violation.

And why can you not dig it any deeper?
So what happens when there's a major water leak and the water can not get into the sump?
