MDEQ issues advisory for one beach, lifts warning on another

HARRISON COUNTY — The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), through its Beach Monitoring Program, has issued a water contact advisory for a sampling station in Harrison County.

This segment of beach is not closed; however, there may be an increased risk of illness associated with swimming in this area.

The location is Station 10 — Gulfport Central, which runs from Alfonso Drive east to the VA main entrance.

Advisories are currently in effect for Stations 8, 10, and 10B.

However, one advisory, issued April 18, has been lifted. It is Station 11A — Edgewater Beach, which extends from Debuys Road east to Edgewater Avenue.
