Your dataset indicates that this waterbody has a good ecological status.

Nutrient concentrations and turbidity are low, and there is no evidence of algal blooms or sediment loads.

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.
