Treated water wherever it comes from, is generally inferior to untreated water for garden uses. If untreated, pond water is great.

Does the pond water have any runoff from fields sprayed with herbicide?

If no, I would use it.

Surface water typically has less mineral ( calcium, manganesium) and a lower pH than well water.

Also community water will probably have chlorine added.

Not sure where you are located but have you considered jetting out a shallow well? We are on our fourth year with zero problems. Easy and cheap garden water. Good info across the web.

Moved here to Tarkington after Harvey and it's my understanding that 100 ft minimum for water 6 to 8 grand. The community water here aint to bad. Will probably get a well put down in the future but for now this is what I have to work with

^^^^THIS^^^^^^

Chlorine gas usually isn't that much of a problem because it dissipates fairly quickly. The mineral content (carbonates) in city water can be bad for raising your soil's Ph though. You can call or e-mail the city to get the mineral content. It's on record. If this water is only a little alkaline, using fertilizers like Ammonium Sulfate will help to lower your Ph again. On a longer term basis, sulfur will lower Ph as well.

As mentioned above, if there are no contaminates in the pond water, I'd use that.
