2 Talbot County Shellfish Areas Reopened In Md.

View Comments

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Maryland Department of the Environment says two waterways previously closed to shellfish harvesting have been reopened and a third has been closed due to high bacteria levels.

The department announced Thursday that recent testing found decreased levels of bacteria in Cummings Creek and a portion of Blackwalnut Cove. The two areas now have been approved for shellfish harvesting. Both are tributaries of Harris Creek.

The environmental department said a section of Broad Creek, meanwhile, has been closed.
