Virginia Department of Health reopens portion of Back River to shellfish harvesting
Water quality monitoring conducted by the VDH Division of Shellfish Sanitation since the spill confirm that a portion of the river is safe to reopen for harvesting. The revised emergency closure area is in effect from Dec. 28, 2018, through Jan. 11, 2019; however, VDH is continuing to sample water and shellfish from the river and will reopen additional areas earlier when sample results confirm that it is safe to do so.
A map of the affected area is posted on the Division of Shellfish Sanitation’s home page at www.vdh.virginia.gov/Shellfish/. The affected shellfish are bivalve mollusks including oysters and clams, but not crabs or fin fish.
