OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

A large portion of front beach in Ocean Springs has been reopened after it was closed by Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality officials earlier this week.

You may remember officials shut down the beach from Jackson Ave. to the small craft harbor after a contractor hit a sewer line on Ocean Ave. City crews worked to contain the spill.

MDEQ sampled the area for the past several days to make sure the water is safe for beach-goers.
