Your dataset indicates that this waterbody has a moderate 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.

Potential sources of nitrate pollution include fertiliser runoff, sewage discharge and livestock activities.
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.
