Fecal coliform at station in Allen Harbor, Harwichport during the 1997 summer. Most stations far exceed safe counts for shellfish harvesting during the warm season and must remain closed to shellfishing as required by MGL Chapter 130 sec 74A. The Town has a memorandum of understanding with DMF to this effect. By Tom Leach, Natural Resources Director.
