The report investigated partly how agriculture on and near Gårdstånga Nygård
affected the water quality in nearby surface water bodies during the period of
testing, and partly whether the supply of water in the Rödabäck river basin is
large enough to enable the construction of a well-functioning irrigation pond.
The water quality was evaluated by collecting water samples in the field,
reading the values of these samples for various water quality parameters and
finally an evaluation of said values. The conclusion of the study on water
quality was that it was not possible to find any reason to believe that agriculture
at and near Gårdstånga Nygård had any considerable negative effect on the
water quality of the nearby surface water bodies during the period in which the
water samples were collected.
The conclusion that could be drawn as a result of the study on the
availability of water in the river basin was that a study in the form included in
this report is not accurate enough to say with sufficient certainty whether the
availability of water in the river basin is large enough to enable the construction
of an effective irrigation pond.
