Calcasieu River Now Open to Recreational Boat Traffic
The Calcasieu River is now open to recreational boat traffic.
Dick Gremillion, Director of the Calcasieu Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, said the river’s level has receded and all restrictions have been lifted.
Parish officials issued an Emergency Declaration to close the Calcasieu River - the Calcasieu River, English Bayou and areas north of Interstate 10 to the Calcasieu Parish line - on Jan. 4 due to the effects that heavy rains in Southwest Louisiana had on the river's levels.
