Abstract: The present work deals with investigation of ecological status including physico-chemical characteristics of these selected ponds. The two ponds (Pond I and II located in Laheriasarai area) have been found to contain polluted water coming from the residential areas surrounding there ponds. Hence ideal step would be to devise a mechanism of treatment/cleaning the domestic sewage before its full in the pond. This can easily be done by the municipal corporation and responsibility should be on the ward councillor of the ward in which these two ponds exist. Till this treatment is not done at least disinfection of the surface water should be done to avoid infection during outdoor bathing by the community which has been witnessed during the study. Water temperature of the pond was found fluctuating due to seasonal fluctuation in ambient temperature. The fluctuation was found due to seasonal variation. Finally the result of the study indicates that the ponds I and II are fit for pisciculture after some remedial measures like treatment of domestic sewage before its fall in the ponds and restriction of domestic activities in the ponds as far as possible.
