BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The Mississippi Commission on Marine Resources got an update Tuesday on the restoration project at Bayou Auguste.

The restored bayou, which flows into Biloxi's back bay, used to be a clogged, dirty drainage ditch. But, thanks to a partnership between the Biloxi Housing Authority, The City of Biloxi and the Land Trust, the bayou is no longer an eyesore.
