MDEQ lifts beach closure prompted by sewage release

BILOXI — The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), through its Beach Monitoring Program, has lifted a beach closure issued June 17.

The stretch of beach is from Grande View Drive to Brady Drive in Biloxi (approximately from east of Edgewater Mall to just past Beauvoir).

The City of Biloxi reported to MDEQ Monday that a pump station malfunctioned and that sewage entered the beach area.
