Present paper limnological investigation of Futera pond of Damoh District, (M.P.) India which was carried for a period of one year 2011-2012. The topographical situation of Futera pond is 23°5' N longitude and 79°26' E latitude in central India and situated in Futera ward No.5 besides the railway line from Bina to Katni in Damoh district. The area of Futera pond is about 36.923 hectares and depth is 4.50 meter. The depth of pond is variable from season to season. The water storage capacity of Futera pond is about 48 MCFT. The pond is anthropogenic and pond water is used for domestic purpose, irrigation, aquaculture etc. The surrounding area of pond is semi urban and semi agricultural. The need to define quality of water has development with the increasing demand of water, which is suitable for specific uses and confirms to desired quality. The most fundamental need is for water suitable for drinking, personal hygiene and food preparation and that pose no risk to human health. Physico-chemical characteristics of Futera pond was studied for a period of 12 months from June 2011- May 2012. In view of above, an attempt was made to study certain limnological parameters such as Temperature, pH, conductivity, turbidity, total hardness, Ca and Mg contents, total alkalinity, BOD, and COD etc. For examination of above all mentioned parameters American Public Health Association (APHA), American Water Works Association was made. Present research work concludes that Futera pond which was basically made for irrigation point of view is now highly polluted water body due to continuous discharge of municipal sewage.
