Sewage overflow forces beach closure in Biloxi

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A sewage overflow in Biloxi has forced the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality to close a portion of the beach.

MDEQ officials say the section of beach is from Beauvoir Road to the east end of Sadler Beach Drive. We're told there was a sewage problem near Brady Drive, causing it to overflow.

MDEQ will monitor the water and lift the closure when bacteria levels indicate conditions are safe.
