Abstract: Water that can be used for drinking, cooking, land farming, etc should be free from physical and chemical contaminants. The major source of drinking water is ground water. The pore spaces and the fractures in rocks carries the major amount ground water which is found beneath the Earth’s surface. The objective of this study is to predict the ground water quality in the Erode district of Tamil Nadu, India. A total number of 26 samples were collected from different regions of the district. The present study deals with the analysis of physical-chemical parameters, Multivariate statistical analysis for predicting the ground water quality in the Erode district. Multivariate statistical method involves determination of correlation and factor analysis. Interpretation of analytical data showed the water quality variance. Finally it was found that there is a variance of about 63.273% in ground water quality during the pre-monsoon season and about 73.624% in post monsoon season.
Keywords: Groundwater, Physical-Chemical Parameters, Multivariate Statistical Methods, Correlation Analysis, Factor and Cluster Analysis.
