SUN HERALDJuly 1, 2014 

A broken sewer line near Mississippi 610, or U.S.S. Vicksburg Way, in Pascagoula resulted in a temporary water contact advisory Tuesday issued by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality.

The advisory is for the Lac La Buche area of Pascagoula. The line is being repaired.

MDEQ recommends that people avoid water contact recreation, including fishing, in these waters. In addition, people should avoid eating fish or anything else taken from these waters until further notice.

MDEQ staff will monitor bacteria levels and water quality and will revise the advisory as needed.
