Nitrate is one of the dominant chemical pollutants of groundwater, and there is a need to mitigate groundwater pollution in rural, urban and industrial terrains in an aquifer system. The study assesses the extent of nitrate pollution in the Densu Basin because of its predominance in agriculture and urbanized vicinities by employing robust techniques for estimating both the natural background and human-induced concentrations. The statistical methods used to estimate these concentrations are the pre-selection method,...
