The beaches are open in Biloxi and Gulfport just in time for the 4th of July weekend.
Signs warning people to stay out of the water came down Wednesday afternoon in Biloxi between I'berville Drive and Travia Avenue. That area was shut down June 19th because of high bacteria levels.
A motel owner faces charges that he deliberately pumped raw sewage into the storm drain that leads to the beach. The DEQ says daily water tests show the bacteria levels are in the safe range so people can go back into the water.
In Gulfport, the section of the beach between Thornton Avenue and 19th Avenue closed last week after high readings that followed heavy rain.
