     In the present investigation, multivariate statistical analysis of various physico-chemical parameters of groundwater samples drawn from different parts of Pollachi, Tamilnadu, India has been carried out.   In this study, water samples of three kinds like Bore well water, Open well water and Municipal water samples are considered. For each Bore well, Open well and Municipal water samples, twelve water quality parameters have been taken for the study. Descriptive Statistical parameters for these water samples are calculated and compared. The coefficient of correlation for each category of water samples is developed separately and discussed in detail. Finally, variation between and within the group of water samples was studied using analysis of variance.
