Abstract: Pond water samples were collected from 10 villages of Surguja district Chhattisgarh (India). These water samples from 10 sampling points of Surguja district were analyzed for their physicochemical characteristics. Laboratory tests were performed for the analysis of samples for Temperature, pH, Electrical conductivity, TDS, Alkalinity, Free Co2, Chloride, DO, BOD, COD, Total hardness, Ca hardness,  Calcium, Magnesium. Were analyzed for a periods of two year from 1st August 2009 to 31st May 2010. By observing the result it can be concluded that the parameters which were taken to study the water quality are below the pollution level for ground water which satisfies the requirement for the use of various purposes like domestic, agricultural, industrial etc. But in case of surface water, the water quality of small community pond are above the permissible limit., it is found that some of the water samples are non-potable for human being due to high concentration of one or the other parameter. The usefulness of these parameters in predicting pond water quality characteristics were discussed.
