BATON ROUGE - A broken water line knocked a state government agency off the internet this afternoon, potentially causing a problem for people who need hunting, fishing or boat licenses.

A spokesperson for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said the broken line flooded their main office in Baton Rouge today.

The water damage means access to the LDWF website will be temporarily unavailable for the next two days, as crews replace equipment and dry other components.

LDWF said people will still be able to buy hunting or fishing licenses at stores around the state, by calling 1-888-765-2602, or on WildlifeLicenses.com by clicking on Louisiana. Boat registrations can be also be renewed that same website. Anyone needing to register a new boat or transact the sale of a used boat can bring in the necessary paperwork to LDWF's Baton Rouge office at 2000 Quail Drive, or mail in a boat registration application available at any LDWF field office.
