• Station 1 — Lakeshore, which extends from the Sliver Slipper Casino east to the jetty west of Poinset Avenue

The MDEQ also issued a water contact advisory for one sampling station in Gulfport. It is Station 8 — Gulfport West, which extends from Maria Avenue to Camp Avenue.
This segment of beach is not closed; however, there may be an increased risk of illness associated with swimming in this area.
