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

Moderately elevated phosphate concentrations can favour the formation of algal blooms.

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.
