Hi, could you check the following sentence? It's meant as a part of a report, so it should be quite formal.

A project aimed to rehabilitate a three-kilometre stretch of (Name) River, restoring it from class IV to class II, started in December 2005 and is expected to be completed in March 2007. Financed by the state, the project costs $7 million and consists of collecting dumped waste by means of rubbish traps and deepening the river bed. The latter has caused protests from the local inhabitants because of the smell and the fear of possible contamination from the silt removed from the river bed and accumulated near the banks.

Thank you in advance!
Looks fine to me.Emotion: big smile
