Abstract: Chemical and microbiological contamination of ground water has several implications for human health. The study of chemical and microbiological contamination of water was carried out in Sitnica river (Kosova). Water samples were collected in 10 sampling points and fourteen different parameters are investigated. The program "Statistica ver. 6.0" has been used for calculations of basic statistical parameters and anomalies (extremes and outliers). These chemometric approaches and results

Dendograms and box-whisker plots were drawn to evaluate the chemical variation. The levels of some microbiological and phisico-chemical parameters and ecotoxic ions from surface waters are compared with the results from the river source where anthropogenic effects are negative. Our results show for chemical and microbiological pollutions as results of anthropogenic factors coming from settlements, peripheral rivers and agricultural in the region surround.
