MDEQ issues Beach Water Contact Advisory for Station 5 in Pass Christian

(JACKSON, Miss.) – The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), through its Beach Monitoring Program, issued a water contact advisory Thursday for Station 5 (Pass Christian West Beach). Two other advisories remain in effect.

The advisory is issued for:

  • Station 5 — Pass Christian West Beach — the extent is from Fort Henry Ave. east to Elliot St.

Advisories remain in effect for:

  • Station 6 — Pass Christian Central Beach — the extent is from Henderson Ave. east to Hiern Ave.
  • Station 8 — Gulfport West Beach — the extent is from Marie Ave. east to Camp Ave.

These segments of beach are not closed; however, there may be an increased risk of illness associated with swimming in these areas. When water samples show that levels are safe for human contact, the advisories will be lifted.

Swimmers are reminded that the Beach Task Force has a standing recommendation that swimming not occur during or within 24 hours of a significant rainfall event.
