Waterways reopening this morning

LIVINGSTON, La. (WAFB) - Both Ascension and Livingston parishes will reopen all waterways to recreational traffic beginning at 8 a.m on Friday, April 23.

The two parishes closed waterways to recreational traffic on Thursday, April 15 due to rising waters resulting from heavy rainfall last week.

Officials say while river gauges show water levels below flood stages, they are asking residents to be mindful of creating wakes near homes and camps along the bank.
