Rebuilding after a disaster

What am I allowed to do in the streams and creeks running near my home or property, to eliminate obstructions to flow and/or re-build the stream so that it does not back-up, erode, etc.?

Can I create a new ditch or take other steps to drain standing water from my property into a nearby creek or stream?

How do I do dispose of the furniture, household items, trash, and general debris that I need to remove from my property?

Can I make a small fire to burn tree cuttings, vegetation, wood, etc.?
