Your dataset indicates that this waterbody has a poor ecological status.
Turbidity values are also high and may lead to additional negative effects such as reduced light availability for aquatic biota and favours eutrophication.
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.
