Contamination warnings part of the summer experience

If you're planning on swimming along public beaches near the Mississippi coast, be on the alert for several water advisories.

The warnings are sounding the alarm for the high counts of bacteria in the water around the Mississippi Sound.

So far this year, Mississippi's Department of Environmental Quality has issued 23 advisories for locations all along South Mississippi.

The advisories mean the waters are off limits.
