WLOX Editorial: Clean and resilient, a great honor for four coast harbors

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - There's a new flag flying over Long Beach Harbor. A flag for which Long Beach should be proud. Harbor construction standards and clean procedures have won it the designation "Clean and Resilient" by the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources.

The clean designation carries requirements to avoid pollution with best practices like fuel delivery and waste disposal. On the resilient side, the designation carries requirements for storm resistant construction and a thorough evacuation plan.

Congratulations to Long Beach and to Pass Christian, Bay St. Louis and Gulfport who already fly the Clean and Resilient Flag. That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
