Roofing issue

We bought an old house that the original occupent built for his family. The roof was buiilt to channel water into a cistern that would then provide water for the large yard during dry months. Unfortunately one of the roof lines slopes towards another in an effort to "pool" drainage into a 2" pipe that feeds the cistern. Over the year this pipe, predicably, has been the source of many problems whenevr it clogs up with debris or snow causing a water back up and leaking. Short of re-engineering the whole roof line, I am wondering if some sort of combination of increasing the pipe size and also sealing the area in "torch-down" fashion might be the answer.

Any idea are welcome.
