The South River is thus positioned to realize the broadest benefit from the oyster restoration work currently being considered by the Oyster Advisory Commission, as the contemplated work will generate both environmental and economic benefits.  Click here to read RiverKeeper Jesse Iliff's full letter to the Oyster Advisory Commision.
