The St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office is asking boaters in Lower St. Martin Parish to watch their speed.

With higher water in the parish, St. Martin Parish President Chester Cedars has issued an executive order for a "No Wake Zone".

The "No Wake Zone" declaration is for Lower St. Martin Parish in the Belle River and Stephensville areas.

If you are speeding on the water, there is a good chance that you will push water onto property and into homes and camps in those areas.

When the "No Wake Zone" is lifted, the St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office will let the public know.
