MDEQ issues new water contact advisories

The Department of Environmental Quality is issuing new water contact advisories along the Coast.

After testing today, MDEQ issued a contact advisory for Bay St. Louis Beach, Pass Christian Beach, and Pass Christian Central Beach.

The department also issued advisories last week for Waveland Beach and Gulfport Central Beach.

While the beaches are not closed, there may be an increased risk of illness if you swim in these areas.
