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

Elevated nitrate concentrations and high turbidity indicate an elevated nutrient loading from the surrounding catchment which can have negative consequences for the aquatic environment.

This high turbidity level indicates that land use activities in the catchment (e.g. agriculture, construction etc.) have a significant impact on the waterbody.
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.
