"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.
