The present investigation deals with the study of physico-chemical status of Danteshwar pond. For such assessment the water quality for parameters like water temperature, pH, acidity, alkalinity, dissolved oxygen, chloride and calcium, magnesium and total hardness, phosphate, nitrate, total solids were analyzed monthly during October 2009 to September 2010. Samples were collected from selected site of the pond. The analysis was done based on the standard methods. The results indicate that most of all the parameters were within permissible limits for potable water standards of WHO except water temperature, pH. Throughout the study period water was alkaline in nature. Chloride showed positive relation with water temperature. Water temperature showed high significant negative correlation with dissolved oxygen. Phosphate showed negative correlation with most of all parameters except acidity and dissolve oxygen. Nitrate showed negative correlation with most of all parameters except water temperature and phosphate. It also showed significant negative correlation with total hardness. Only total hardness showed significant monthly variation.
