MDEQ Closes Gulfport Beach To Swimming In Three Areas

The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality has issued an advisory for three areas of the beach in Gulfport.

The first is from Maria Avenue on the west end to Camp Avenue on the east. The second is from Alfonso Drive on the west end to the main entrance to the old V.A. property on the east. And finally from Teagarden on the west end to Anniston Avenue on the east.

MDEQ advises residents are advised not to swim in these areas due to high bacteria levels.
