Recreational Boating Suspended on Flooded Mississippi

THE DELTA (Ben Caxton) — Recreational boating activity is temporarily suspended on the Mississippi River, its tributaries, lakes, and waterways that are affected by high water. The suspension impacts only recreational boating, not boating related to transportation to and from homes. All boating activity that is allowed on the suspended waterways shall be conducted in accordance with a “dead slow; leave no wake” standard. The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks has elevated law enforcement presence to patrol the levees, promote public safety and enforce wildlife laws to protect animals affected by flooding.
