Water is as essential component of life and to maintain ecological process of the bio-system, has a very important role in human civilization. River, tanks, ponds, and reservoirs constitute the main resource of Inland water. Water covers about 73% of the earth’s surface and provides the most extensive medium for majority of animals; therefore, an adequate knowledge of their environment is indispensable. It has been estimated that the total area of fresh water of the world is about 0.5% of the total earth’s surface. Water can serve as source of drinking water, water for irrigation, industries, power development and fisheries. Water plays an important role in the life of human beings. In the last few decades, limitless urbanization has caused a serious pollution problem due to the disposal of sewage to the water bodies. The present study focused on the physico-chemical parameters of pond water in chhapakaiya pond birgunj, Nepal in four different sites. All parameter were analyzed as per the standard methods given in American Public Health Association (APHA). Water quality parameters such as depth, transparency, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen (DO), carbon dioxide and nitrate were analyzed.
