August 29, 2005
marked both the end and beginning of an era in Mississippi history, when the wind and storm surge from Hurricane Katrina devastated several communities along the Gulf Coast, including the City of Biloxi. Hurricane Katrina destroyed much of the City’s infrastructure, damaging Biloxi's water distribution, sewage collection and storm drainage systems along with several sewage pumping stations. These systems remain in desperate need of repair to bring the City's critical infrastructure to maximum capacity. The task is daunting. Repair and​ restoration are n​eeded on approximately 426,000 linear feet of sewer main, 485,000 linear feet of water main, 73 pumping s​tations, and 320,000 linear feet of storm drainage.  As part of the reconstruction effort, an estimated 100 miles of roadway will be repaired as well.

The energy and determination demonstrated by Biloxi's residents, business owners, agencies, and city officials have fueled the extraordinary efforts to bring Biloxi back—stronger and better than ever.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
