Another Beach Closes

The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality has closed a portion of beach at Waveland from Vacation Lane to the west to Favre Street to the east because of bacteria.

Pollution control officials said there will be NO swimming and other recreational activities in these waters and any activity on the sands of the beach in the area until water samples show a consistent safe level for human contact.

The Gulf Coast Research Laboratory will perform water samples until the beach can be re-opened.
