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

Significantly elevated phosphate concentrations indicate eutrophic conditions which typically result in algal blooms.

High phosphate concentrations may also indicate a local pollution source (e.g. wastewater outlet, industrial emission or an agricultural runoff).
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.

Notes: 
Lots of wild waterfowl on the moat and local residents feeding them. There is the creation of a wetlands nearby to help filter the pollution and mitigate sewage over spills which is a recurring issue and concern. The area is high risk for flooding and local flood defense is being created opposite the Moat. Moat feeds yeading brook which runs through park. Some signs of litter and floating rubbish by the exit valves. Wire mess is in place to prevent this flowing through.
