For those who want to celebrate the first day of summer with a dip in Lake Michigan, good news: Chicago beaches have been re-opened for swimming. However, Oak Street and Montrose beaches have swim advisories. Low to moderate traces of E. coli bacteria were found in the water near those beaches. The Chicago Park District has more information on how to enjoy the lakefront during the 2009 beach season. [Trib]
