Biloxi Beach Reopens

A popular section of Biloxi beach is open for swimming once again.

High levels of bacteria in the water prompted the Department of Environmental Quality to close the beach between Travia Avenue and Iberville Drive on Aug. 31st. This section of beach has closed five times so far this year because of high bacterial levels.

DEQ water samples show this area is safe again for human contact.
