  • Department of Basic and Applied Science, School of Engineering, GD Goenka University, Gurgaon - 122103, Haryana, India


Background: Water plays an important role for healthy well-being of all living beings. During last decade, due to human interference ground water get polluted drastically and resulted into many health hazards. Objective: This study is done to understand the seasonal variations in the physiochemical parameters of the groundwater of three sites of Amber Tehsil of Jaipur district, Rajasthan using statistical tools. Methodology: To carry out the research, ground water samples were collected once a month throughout a year. Three samples were collected from each site and chemical analysis was conducted. With the help of one-way ANOVA test the difference between the three sites based on the parameters was calculated. Findings: This paper reveals that groundwater of these three sites shows seasonal variations in all twelve parameters using statistical methods like paired t-test and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) tests. The groundwater of all the sites is not suitable for drinking & industrial purposes which will help the local government to take necessary action.
