Weather Update: Cypress-Black Bayou closed


Rising water levels have resulted in the closure of the Cypress-Black Bayou lakes in Bossier Parish effective immediately and until further notice.

Robert Berry, executive director of the Cypress-Black Bayou Recreation and Water Conservation District, said Thursday the closure includes a mandatory “no boat” zone covering both lakes.

Water level in the lakes has risen above the minimum flood safety level, Berry said. The public will be informed when the closure is lifted.
