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

Moderately elevated phosphate concentrations can favour the formation of algal blooms.
Turbidity values are also high and may lead to additional negative effects such as reduced light availability for aquatic biota and favours eutrophication.
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.
