A few years ago you tried a Phoslock water treatment on Crome Broad.
Have you had any results from this trial?

Evening Paul,

Sorry I don't know the answer to that one.
I will try and find out tomorrow and get back to you.

Cheers

John

Afternoon - here is the answer.

"Monthly water quality sampling has been undertaken by the Broads Authority between; 2013-2015, to monitor the success of the Phoslock application.  Results show that overall phosphate levels in Cromes Broad have reduced, however winter peaks in soluble phosphates (originating from septic tanks and agricultural sources) are still occurring. This is particularly noticeable in the north basin situated close to septic tank phosphate sources.

The Broads Authority and the Environment Agency have been investigating septic tank issues, however long term solutions to the problem are required in order to fully restore high water quality to the lake.

Regards

John

Thanks JP for taking the time to reply.
So maybe not a total waste of time as it has shown up some areas of concern.

Maybe I should ask the same  question another couple of years to see if the results are worth continuing with monitoring.  


Tks.
