BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Workers have completed a dredging project designed to improve water quality in the Atchafalaya Basin.

The Louisiana Department of Natural Resources said Wednesday that the dredging work is designed to move freshwater from the Atchafalaya River into a swamp within the Attakapas Island Wildlife Management Area in St. Mary Parish.

DNR says the $184,000 project will improve water quality off the east bank of the river near Grand Lake.

The Atchafalaya Basin Technical Advisory Group approved the project.
