PRESS RELEASE

Rising Tidal Water

LIVINGSTON PARISH (May 20, 2011) - LOHSEP Staff & Parish President Grimmer just meet with Springfield Police Dept to assess the rising water situation in that area. President Grimmer is gathering information at this time from all parish waterways. A determination in closing the waterways due to rising waters will be made very soon. Stay tuned for further details.

We also ask that all watercraft please use caution and exercise slower than normal wake in areas with inhabited and developed property. The waters are already rising into areas that can cause damage to property. Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office has been notified and extra patrols of the waterways are being stepped up.
