Beach closings. . .might have something to do with sewage in the river

So the beaches remain closed in Chicago as we approach the hottest weekend of the last two years.

Gee, you think the fact that we still use the Chicago River as an industrial channel with sewage that doesn't get disinfected might have *something* to do with the bacteria (read: crap) in the Lake?

It is long past time that the Greater Metropolitan Water Reclamation District disinfected all wastewater (read: sewage) before releasing it into the Chicago River.
