Beach Closure after Sewage Leak
A segment of water in Long Beach is closed after a sewage leak caused by electrical failure at a lift station near South Island View Avenue today.
The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality issued the closure from South Lang Avenue to Runnels Avenue. MDEQ advises residents not to enter the water or consume any seafood collected from these waters until further notice.
MDEQ will monitor the water and lift the closure when bacteria levels are safe for water contact.
