The Natchitoches Parish Port continued normal operations Monday as the Red River began to drop after cresting at 42 feet, approximately 9 feet over flood stage.  Red River is now at 41.85 and continues to drop.  Though lock and dams along the Red River remain closed, the Natchitoches Parish Port has been able to continue normal on-site activity, such as truck and rail activities.
Attached photos show the water levels relative to freeboard elevation of the port site.

The Natchitoches Community Alliance Foundation, Inc. was formed in late 2014 with the mission to provide support and leadership for economic development and workforce solutions affecting economic activity in our parish and region.
