Effective Friday April 3, 2020 at 2:00 p.m., there will be a No Wake Zone in effect for Lower St. Martin (Stephensville/Belle River) until further notice.

Parish President Chester Cedars issued the order today.

The water level is high and boaters traveling at a high rate of speed have the potential to throw additional water into yards and homes along the bayou.

The parish is encouraging boaters to stay home due to the precautionary measures in place for COVID-19, however; if you must travel on the water, please remember to follow the safe distancing guidelines for occupants on your boat.
