Groundwater (GW) trend analysis provides an early warning system for changes in water table caused by climatic conditions or in response to human activities such as water withdrawal. This analysis investigates the pattern and trends of the seasonal groundwater level data of Arpa River Basin in Bilaspur district, Chhattisgarh for the period from 1984 to 2015. A study was under taken for identifying the trends in pre- and post-monsoon groundwater levels using non parametric Mann-Kendall test and Sen's slope estimator for time series modelling and forecasting of pre- and post-monsoon groundwater. The test has been used to analyze the groundwater data collected from the open/bore wells in the Arpa basin. For analysis using pre monsoon (May- June) and post monsoon groundwater data for six blocks of Bilaspur district. The result of the analysis shows that there is a decreasing trend in Belha block, but increasing trend observed in Masturi and Takhatpur block during pre and post monsoon season for the period of (1984-2015).
