How do we know the water is clean? There's a test for that...
Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre is an open water venue and that means it's open to the elements and we're subject to environmental changes around us.
We are very serious about the quality of our water and making sure it is safe for you to enter. We test it weekly and, in any case of suspected contamination, immediately. If it falls below the highest standards, we close the facility until it is rectified.
We test to the same standards as the Environmental Agency. More information on these standards can be found here.
