Water quality at Darlow continues to look good. We have seen a small increase in ammonia to trace levels (0.04 mg/L, pH8.2), but they are not a major cause for concern at this stage and is probably a result of the disruption of silt during the weed removal process. All other parameters and water clarity are also good (oxygen at 8.9 mg/L; 89.1 %), and we have seen a much-needed 11 cm increase in water level since the testing in September.

Water temperature remains stubbornly high (at 15.3 °C), especially for the time of year.
