Types of beach outfalls: open, closed
Sunday, November 13th, 2016
There are two types of beach outfalls found along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Closed outfalls drain water from municipal storm drain systems along Highway 90, as well as the highway itself, out into the Mississippi Sound using a closed pipe that is several hundred yards long. Open outfalls drain water from creeks, ditches, and bayous north of Highway 90.
