The Scituate Shellfish Advisory Committee will host a presentation by the Mass Division of Marine Fisheries Shellfish Division on the potential for reopening a portion of the 600-plus acres of recreationally harvested shellfish beds in the North and South Rivers. The shellfish beds have been closed to recreational harvest since 2020 due to a change in regulations that require closing areas surrounding wastewater discharges based on dilution rates to comply with the National Shellfish Sanitation Program which allows for the commercial sale of shellfish. The regulations require the closure due to the possibility of exposure of shellfish to viruses, like norovirus, that may be present in wastewater. The presentation will provide results of a dilution study in our own rivers and water quality results of samples taken from the Scituate Wastewater Treatment plant.
