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.

Total number of participants : 
1.00
Notes: 
Water levels extremely low was very difficult to get enough water to sample The site was bordering an allotment and a park, which is currently undergoing construction work upstream of the sample site. The construction is to develop flood prevention as the area is high risk of flooding. There are two outflow pipes upstream to the sample site but neither were not flowing. Lots of leaf litter in the stream and dead wood from fallen branches.
