Between the Sawmill Rd test site and this one, the tributary that holds the Coliban Water releases from the wastewater treatement plant enters.  Therefore there is no flow, only pools, at Sawmill Rd however a steady medium flow at Millwood Rd.  The Sawmill Rd testing is done by Huntly PS students so entered on the River Detectives website but it showed much higher EC and turbidity levels due to stagnant water but lower phosphorus levels.
