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

These nutrient concentrations also favour the formation of algal mats which may influence aquatic biodiversity.
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.
