Your dataset indicates that this waterbody has a moderate ecological status.
Potential sources of nitrate pollution include fertiliser runoff, sewage discharge and livestock activities.
These values are expected to vary throughout the year as a result of weather patterns and changes in land use. Please help us to better understand this ecosystem by continuing to make measurements.

Notes: 
This was taken on the Sunday after storm "Doris" had passed through causing much devastation of trees in the area. Although still carrying some colour, the river was back down to a normal level for Winter. There was no collection of foam but just a small amount of foam in the riffle channel. There is a good chance that a Redd may be present. This is also the location of our Blue Wing Olive introduction. There are no point source introductions however it is at the confluence of the Culford Stream and the River Lark, which may potentialy carry road run-off
