How do you maintain a man-made pond?

My husband and I just purchased land in Vermont that comes with its own pond. The pond was put in by the previous owners.  It's being fed by underground water/run-off from mountain snows and streams.  How do we maintain this and how do we make sure it's safe to swim in?  We also are hoping to pump from the pond to place into food-grade barrels to use for outdoor showering and resupplying the gray water tank on our RV.
