It depends on how the pond is fed.
If it's fed from runoff, then this summer it might turn rancid.
If it's a spring fed pond then it will probably be fine year round, unless it freezes.
I have a pond, and I let the horses drink from it until the weather gets hot. Then I try to keep them out of it.
They do love to take a dip in it on a hot summer day, but I really don't like them drinking from it during hot weather.
Honestly, it's really hard to say, you need to keep an eye on it.
