A conditional management plan was written that supports seasonal closures in portions of the Poquoson River and its tributaries and Back Creek Growing Area # 53 in Poquoson and York County. The Conditionally Approved (Seasonally Condemned) areas will be labeled in these shellfish closures document as Sections S137 - S147. The conditionally classified areas will remain in closed status from April 1 through October 31 corresponding to the warmer months when bacteria concentrations more frequently exceed the NSSP standard.
