SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality lifted a water contact advisory for Biloxi East Beach near Holley Street, but three other advisories remain in effect.

The advisories that remain in effect Friday afternoon are for Gulfport West Beach from Marie Avenue east to Camp Avenue, Pass Christian East Beach from Espy Avenue east to Hayden Avenue and Lakeshore Beach near Lakeshore Drive from the Silver Slipper Casino east to Pointset Avenue.

MDEQ warns if you swim in these parts of the Mississippi Sound, the current high bacteria levels mean you have a higher chance of getting sick.

MDEQ will lift these advisories when water samples show that bacteria levels are safe for human contact again.
