What to do if I own 26 acres of land and my neighbor has constructed a french drain system around his home and has diverted the water onto my property?

Question Details: The pipe itself is on my property at least 30 feet. The water does no damage to the dwelling on my property, but it drains a continuous flow of water into a wooded section of my land which has been declared a wetland, and it alters the landscape of such wetland. Do I have the right to remove such piping from my land? Do I have the right to cap off the pipe at my property line? The neighbor owns 10 acres of land adjoining to my land and has many other options for diverting his water issues instead of putting them onto my property.
