Atchafalaya Basin Program

 Natural Resources, Office of the Secretary

The Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) oversees the management of the state master plan for the Atchafalaya Basin Floodway System. The Atchafalaya Basin Program (ABP) operates under the authority of Act 3 of 1998 and Act 920 of 1999. DNR, the federal U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the basin parishes work together in creating projects by executing cooperative endeavors or agreements that protect and enhance the basin. Several other state agencies, like the departments of Wildlife and Fisheries and Culture, Recreation and Tourism, also work to establish projects aimed at enhancing the basin.

The ABP logo is available online with usage guidelines.
