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

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