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

Significantly elevated phosphate concentrations indicate eutrophic conditions which typically result in 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.
