It's all Good: City Issues Annual Water Quality Report, more Biloxi City News

From:  City of Biloxi   6/29/18   GCN

Annual testing of the city's water systems shows that municipal water customers in Biloxi are receiving water that "meets or exceeds all federal and state requirements."

The annual report, mandated by the state Department of Health, is being mailed to all city residents and businesses in the July issue of BNews Monthly.

The four-page consumer-confidence report provides “detailed information on the quality of water and related services, and determines the overall susceptibility that the source of our water faces from identified potential contaminants.”

Biloxi's municipal water is provided by a series of city-maintained wells located throughout the community.
