In the present study, interdependency between Physico-Chemical parameters of Bhavani River water samples collected from three stations of Coimbatore district, Tamilnadu, India is carried out.   For the water quality parameter under consideration, Descriptive Statistical model is developed for each station. Cross correlation coeffienct between the parameters of three stations are calculated and the parameters with high significant level of Cross correlation are identified. To identify the interdependency between the parameters, regression analysis is used for highly cross correlated water quality parameters. The few water quality characteristics are very high in station III compare to other two stations. It is observed that the collision of human action was rigorous on only some of the parameters and leads to deterioration in water quality, due to the lack of proper sanitation, unprotected river sites and high anthropogenic actions.
