Little Choptank Closed To Shellfish Harvesting

BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland environmental officials have closed part of the Little Choptank River in Dorchester County for shellfish harvesting because of elevated levels of bacteria. 

The closure is effective Monday. It affects the headwaters of the Little Choptank River, along with Gary Creek, Lee Creek and Smith Cove. 

It does not affect fishing or crabbing. 

No direct pollution sources were identified as causing the elevated bacteria levels.
