MDEQ Lifts Water Contact Advisory
The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality lifts water advisories for the Biloxi and Gulfport area.
The advisory included the industrial seaway and Bernard Bayou from Highway 49 through Big Lake to Popp’s Ferry Road in Biloxi.
MDEQ officials say people can now swim and consume fish or anything else taken from these waters. Water samples taken during the last few days returned results below the levels of concern.
The advisory has been issued due to breaches in two force mains in the City of Gulfport last week.
