I assume you are speking of the relief valve discharge. The simple answer is no, Your relief discharge must be self drainning and as short as possible. I have heard of cases where it was allowed to be done but required a drain hole drilled in the discharge pipe at the lowest possible point closest to the relief valve. You should consult your local building official, because they are the only one that will have the power to allow this.
