Multiple lines into one line

I have a streams line feature class that has multiple little line segments that create the streams on the map.  I need to create a 200ft buffer but with these little line segments everywhere I get several little buffers intersecting each other rather than one whole buffer.  How can I fix this problem?  A jpeg is attached to show what I am talking about.  Any help is greatly appreciated.
