MDEQ: Water in Waveland safe to touch again

WAVELAND, MS (WLOX) - It's safe to go in that stretch of water in Waveland that had high bacteria levels. The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality on Tuesday lifted the water contact advisory from Oak Boulevard east to Favre Street that was issued February 6th.

MDEQ said bacteria levels have returned to acceptable levels in that section of water off the beach. The Gulf Coast Research Laboratory is the agency that performs water testing along the Mississippi Gulf Coast beaches for MDEQ.
