Blue-green Algae in the Broads

Blue-green algae has been reported at a number of locations in the Broads in recent days including Malthouse Broad and Black Horse Broad.

Please ensure you stay out of the water at these locations and keep dogs under control in the area. Remain vigilant for signs of blue-green algae in other locations across the Broads.

You can use the ‘Bloomin Algae’ app to report sightings and see if there have been any algal blooms recorded in your area.
