Abstract
This research article deals with the study of quality of pond water. Pond water samples were collected from 27 villages of Bilaspur district, Chhattisgarh (India) in triplicate. Samples were analyzed for physico-chemical parameters including pH, electrical conductivity (EC), total dissolved solids (TDS), temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen (DO). pH ranged from 6.50 - 9.69, Electrical Conductivity ranged from 118.7 - 206.6 mhos/cm, TDS ranged from 165.5 - 254.8 ppm, Temperature ranged from 20.9 - 33.8C, Salinity ranged from 5.1 - 6.9 ppt, Dissolved oxygen ranged from 2.41 - 4.8 mg/l. Correlation coefficient (r) was found significant at p less than 0.05 level for the tasted parameters. The result of the proposed study will establish some facts about the use of water for various purposes like domestic and agriculture.

Keywords pond water;physico-chemical parameters;pH;EC;TDS;DO.
