CR2 is participating in a cleanup and beach health assessment of Northerly Island's 12th Street Beach through the Alliance for the Great Lakes' Tier 2 Adopt-a-Beach program. We will record measurements of weather condition, current speed/direction, bather load, and other factors affecting water quality, test for the presence of E. coli and other coliforms, and clean trash off the beach.
Today's weather conditions (as of 12:15pm)

“Even if you never have the chance to see or touch the ocean, the ocean touches you with every breath you take, every drop of water you drink, every bite you consume. Everyone, everywhere is inextricably connected to and utterly dependent upon the existence of the sea.” – Dr. Sylvia Earle
