Lake Charles -
The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Marine Enforcement Division will be monitoring the Calcasieu and West Fork Rivers and public boat launch closures. The rivers north of the Saltwater Barrier to the Calcasieu Parish line will be closed to boat traffic until the rivers return to normal. These patrols are to provide public safety and to prevent property damage caused by unnecessary boat traffic.
The CPSO Marine Enforcement Unit asks the public to cooperate with the river and boat launch closures.
