This waterbody is classified as 'moderate' for phosphates. Diffused agricultural pollution could be a reason for this increased phosphate level.


Carry out farm visits to determine the extent of agricultural run-off and understand fluctuations in phosphate better.

If agricultural run-off is confirmed, work with landowners to reduce the phosphate run off into this waterbody.
