Can I disturb the land within the stream buffers?

You cannot disturb inside a buffer without a buffer variance from the Georgia Environmental Protection Division. Contact the Lumpkin County Planning Department at 706-864-6894 prior to any disturbance within a stream buffer. Penalties could be stiff, and are enforceable locally and through the State.
