Sawdust Bend Dredge Disposal Project

Work on the Sawdust Bend Dredge Disposal Project is now underway, according to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF).

Last week, LDWF issued a notice warning hunters and fishermen destined for Pass-a-Loutre Wildlife Management Area (WMA) to be aware of an ongoing dredge project on the WMA.

The Sawdust Bend Dredge Disposal Project will take place prior to the beginning of teal season (Friday, September 15) and continue beyond duck hunting season, which closes at sunset January 21, reported the LDWF.

LDWF also added that the Willow Tree Cut canal within the project area will be impassable as a dredge pipe will be at or near the surface of the water at the western end of this canal.

Pass-a-Loutre WMA, which encompasses 115,000 acres, is located at the mouth of the Mississippi River, approximately 10 miles south of Venice in southern Plaquemines Parish.
