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

Floating algal mats limit the penetration of sunlight into the waterbody. This restricts the available habitats for the organisms in 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.
