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

The presence of cyanobacteria (blue green scum) indicates high nutrient loading and is a potential health hazard to people and animals.

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.
