Phoslock application to Scottish Loch for the European Championships
Phoslock was applied last week to Strathclyde Loch in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. The Loch is the venue for both the triathlon and rowing events at the inaugural European Championships which will be co-hosted by Glasgow and Berlin in early August.
Phoslock was also applied to Strathclyde Loch in 2014, prior to the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, as a mitigation measure against blue green algae. Following the success of the 2014 application, the managers of the Loch, the North Lanarkshire Council, decided to reapply Phoslock in the lead-up to the European Championships.
The European Championships will feature seven different sports and is being run by leading European sporting organisations. The events are expected to attract 4,500 competitors and a television audience of up to 1 billion people.
