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

Nutrient concentrations and turbidity are low, and there is no evidence of algal blooms or sediment loads.

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.
