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

These results indicate that algal blooms may be occurring in this waterbody.

However, it would be expected that turbidity values would be higher if such blooms were occurring. Are you sure your data are correct? Please double check your results.

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.
