The current study revealed to contamination of fresh water with twelve genus and species of parasites and protozoa: Ascaris lumbricoides (28%), Toxocara canis (7.5%), Strongyloides sp. (9.3%), Rhabditae larvae (8%), Hymenolepis nana (18.6%), Cryptosporidium sp. (33.3%), Giardia lamblia (22.6%), Entamoeba histolytica (12%) , Entamoeba coli (20.6%), Balantidium coli (11.8%), Coleps hirtus (30%), and Nyctotherus ovalis (10.6%) in all studied areas for the first time. Significant differences at the rate of pollution in fresh water with parasites and protozoa among studied areas.
