MDEQ reopens beaches in Biloxi and Pass Christian

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality announced on Thursday it has lifted beach closures in Biloxi and Pass Christian.

Officials said the beaches between Beauvoir Road to Sadler Beach Drive in Biloxi and between Espy Avenue to Hayden Avenue in Pass Christian were closed on Monday after lift station problems led to sewage bypasses.
