MDEQ Lifts Two Beach Water Contact Advisories in Pass Christian

(Jackson, Miss.) – The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), through its Beach Monitoring Program, lifted two beach water contact advisories Friday for Station 5 (Pass Christian West Beach) and Station 6 (Pass Christian Central Beach). Water samples at these stations show the areas have attained acceptable bacteria levels. Three other advisories remain in effect.
Advisories are lifted for:
  • Station 5 — Pass Christian West Beach — the extent is from Fort Henry Ave. east to Elliot St.
  • Station 6 — Pass Christian Central Beach — the extent is from Henderson Ave. east to Hiern Ave.
Advisories remain in effect for:
  • Station 4 — Bay St. Louis Beach — the extent is from the Box Culvert east to Ballantine St.
  • Station 7 — Pass Christian East Beach — the extent is from Espy Ave. east to Hayden Ave.
  • Station 12A — Biloxi West Central Beach — the extent is from Travia St. east to Iberville Dr.
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.
