Ponds play an important role from very beginning in the society. Ponds are recognized as an obvious part of our life. Especially aged and historical ponds contributes to the society in many ways as source of drinking water, fish culture and other daily purposes. The present study was aimed to evaluate the organic pollution status in three contiguous ancient ponds of Islamia Kamil M.A. Madrasa, Karamatia Kamil Madrasa and District Central Mosque in Noakhali, Bangladesh. A well-established Palmer’s algal pollution index was employed to evaluate pond water quality. This study reported all sampling ponds had organic pollution due to algal distribution. A total four groups of phytoplankton as Chlorophyceae (14 genera), Bacillariophyceae (8 genera), Cyanophyceae (5 genera) and Euglenophyceae (2 genera) were identified in conducting study. A total phytoplankton was recorded from 2.32×106 ± 3.5×105 to 8.75×105 ± 8.64×104 ind/l in all samling ponds. The evaluation of physico-chemical parameters (Water temperature, transparency, dissolved oxygen, total alkalinity, ammonia and pH) was also performed to understand the water quality more specifically.
