HANCOCK COUNTY and HARRISON COUNTY — The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), through its Beach Monitoring Program, has lifted three water contact advisories for three beach monitoring stations.
The advisories were lifted for the following stations in Hancock County:
• Station 1-Lakeshore Beach, which extends from the Sliver Slipper Casino eastward to the jetty west of Poinset Avenue
• Station 3-Waveland Beach, which extends from Oak Boulevard east to Favre Street.
MDEQ also lifted the advisory in Harrison County for Station 7A-Long Beach, which extends from Oak Gardens Avenue east to South Girard 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.
