Water quality is an important criteria for assessment of the productivity of pond. The study was designed to assess the quality of pond water of Anandbag Pond & Manokamna temple pond of LNMU, Campus, Darbhanga,Bihar, with respect to physico-chemical parameters including turbidity, conductivity, dissolve O2, free CO2, PH, Potassium, zinc, iron, sodium, chloride & hardness. The results were evaluated and compared with both ponds water quality standards. It is found that based on physico- chemical parameters, both ponds water is not suitable for domestic uses.
