THE STORY:

I once had a beautiful backyard, but over time and many years of flooding my yard was ruined. I took it upon myself to try to restore my yard to its original luster by dumping dirt in my backyard to bring the level back to normal. My neighbor complained about that to the State of New Jersey, which came to my house and ordered me to remove all the dirt citing that my entire backyard in located in a 100 year flood zone and I am prohibited from altering the landscape in any way, shape, or form. Dumping the dirt would have allowed me to rebuild the foundation back up from the years of water damage caused by stagnant water settling in my yard. I also wanted to prevent the stagnant water from pooling in my yard creating millions of mosquitos that could be dangerous to my family and neighbors. I would like to use the money to hire a professional landscaper to restore my yard as it once was, without disturbing the natural flow of the brook but at the same time cut down on the deadly mosquito population. The first five photos show what my yard looked like before, photo's 6-7 show what is looked like after a heavy rain and finally, photo's 8-10 show the dirt I dumped there and what I eventually need removed, please help.
