The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC)/Division of Watershed Stewardship will conduct a public hearing regarding proposed amendments to 7 DE ADMIN CODE 7402 Shellfish Sanitation Regulations; prohibited shellfish growing areas; seasonally approved shellfish growing areas (Appendix 1 & 3, respectively). The hearing will be held in the DNREC Auditorium, located at 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901.
Proposes to adopt provisions consistent with the National Shellfish Sanitation Program and US Food and Drug Administration Guidance Documents for shellfish growing area classifications. The Department previously prohibited harvest in the identified area through Secretaryâ€™s Order No. 2016-WS-0013; however, further action is required to subsequently adopt this closure through the normal regulatory process. Specifically, this action seeks to formally adopt the Prohibited shellfish harvesting classification in the identified area of the Rehoboth Bay. The proposed amendments may be inspected at the Departmentâ€™s offices located at 100 W. Water Street, Suite 10B, Dover, DE 19904, or are available by calling the Watershed Assessment and Management Section at (302) 739-9939.
