BILOXI and OCEAN SPRINGS — The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), through its Beach Monitoring Program, has lifted two water contact advisories issued Aug. 10 for the two stretches of beach.
The cleared beaches are:
• Station 12B — Porter Avenue Beach in Biloxi (from St. Peter Street east to Dukate Street)
• Station 14 — Front Beach in Ocean Springs (from in front of the Ocean Springs Yacht Club east to Jackson Avenue)
Water samples at these stations show the areas have attained acceptable bacteria levels. The Gulf Coast Research Laboratory, which performs water sampling of the Mississippi Gulf Coast beaches for MDEQ, notifies the agency when an area returns to acceptable levels and safe conditions.
