SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Two oyster reefs are set to reopen Monday for harvest, according to officials with the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources.

The two areas include Henderson Point Reef and southern portions of the Pass Christian Reef.

As we reported earlier in the week, the reefs in Mississippi waters have been closed due to contamination from the Pearl River.

MDMR agents have been testing the waters over the weekend for bacteria to determine when oyster season could reopen.

For more information, call the MDMR Oyster Hotline at 228-374-5176 or 1-800-385-5902.
