MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The 32nd Street Beach on Lake Calhoun reopened Thursday after a test found bacteria levels are now safe.

The Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board closed three popular beaches on Lake Calhoun and Lake Hiawatha earlier this week after tests found high levels of E. coli.

Water quality staff believed high water levels and geese at the beach are to blame.

There are no reports that anyone got sick after swimming at any of the beaches.

Lake Calhoun’s Thomas Beach and Lake Hiawatha Beach are still closed.

They will be retested on Monday.
