Your dataset indicates that this waterbody has a poor ecological status.
High turbidity harms aquatic life by reducing food supplies, degrading habitat, and impairing fish activities.
This high turbidity level indicates that land use activities in the catchment (e.g. agriculture, construction etc.) have a significant impact on the waterbody.
Have you identified any such activities?  It would be very helpful if you could add this information by editing your data record to include this observation.
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.
