pH: 7
Salinity: 1200┬ÁS/cm
Dissolved oxygen: 5mg/L, 55% saturation

ACT Waterwatch says:

This pool is being well managed by the looks of the low turbidity. Pools often have lower than ideal level oxygen in them. This can be a problem for native fish but makes a great place for frogs to breed, as fish eat their eggs. Salinity here is also an issue.
