Your dataset indicates that this waterbody has a poor ecological status.
Elevated nitrate and phosphate concentrations indicate high nutrient loading from the surrounding catchment, creating conditions of 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.

General Information
English
Total number of participants : 
2.00
Notes: 
The site is on the west bank of the River Roding, close to the Bridge where it says Roding Valley Park on the map. The post code is an Ilford one but it's not actually in the town of Ilford. The nearest street is Roding Lane South which has an IG4 postcode. It may be confusing because Ilford is in the London Borough of Redbridge but its postal address is Essex.
