Parts of the Gulfport and Biloxi beaches are under water contact advisories, according to a statement issued by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality on Saturday.

The beaches are not closed, but swimming in these areas could potentially increase risk of illness, the agency said. There are high bacteria levels along these beaches.

The East Courthouse Road Beach in Gulfport and the Biloxi East Central Beach are both under advisories. The affected area for Biloxi extends from St. Peter Street east to Dukate Street, and Gulfport’s affected area is from Courthouse Road east to Tegarden.

Advisories for these areas will be lifted when water samples show that bacteria levels are safe for contact.
