Livingston Parish waterways to reopen Saturday

Livingston Parish closes waterways due to rising water levels

LIVINGSTON — Livingston Parish officials will reopen the waterways to recreational traffic at 8 a.m. on June 22. It comes after the waterways were closed on June 20th due to rising water levels.

The rising water levels were brought on by high winds from Tropical Storm Alberto in the southwest Gulf of Mexico, the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post Wednesday afternoon.

“In collaboration with Springfield FD, LPSO, and Ascension OEP, it has been unanimously agreed to implement the closure for the safety of everyone in the community,” the parish said in a Facebook post. “We urge all residents to comply with this proclamation.”

If residents were to still need, the parish says they have sandbags available at the Springfield fire department, Killian Town Hall, and Maurepas fire department.

Tropical Storm Alberto is impacting many low lying areas of the state. Louisiana State Police is monitoring road conditions on LA 1 between Golden Meadow and Grand Isle in Lafourche Parish. 

A picture shared on social media by State Police showed water over parts of LA 1, though the road was still passable.
