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

Moderate turbidity levels can impair aquatic biodiversity by reducing the light available to underwater biota.

This moderate turbidity level indicates that land use activities in the catchment (e.g. agriculture, construction etc.) could have an 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.
