Mississippi Beaches Still Closed
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – The state Department of Environmental Quality has closed all Mississippi beaches because of potential hazards with water quality and debris created by Isaac.
MDEQ officials say in a news release that there’s uncertainty about water quality because of widespread flooding.
MDEQ says it will resume water quality testing when the debris has been cleared, and beaches will open to water contact when results show water quality standards have been met.
