Ascension Parish Government announced that Parish waterways will remain open at this time.
President Clint Cointment made the decision after consulting with the Louisiana Office of Wildlife and Fisheries and the Ascension Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, both of which concurred with the decision. He stressed that Parish officials are regularly monitoring the weather. If conditions change, new directives will be issued.
As always, residents are encouraged to practice safety and prudence when boating or using waterways.
