The main objective of this work was to study the irrigation effects by domestic wastewater on changes in final penetration rate. This experiment was carried out in a completely randomized block design in in Islamic Azad University, Shahr-e-Qods Branch, Iran by measuring essential features related to soil characteristics. After a measurement final penetration rate in irrigated soils by domestic wastewater and first and second rain, we found that average for final penetration in the irrigated Rapeseed lyesmiter soils by domestic sewage reduced to about – 41%, it did reduce to -18% in the alfalfa limiter soils that were irrigating by first drainage and also it did reduce to -7% in the basil lyesmiter soils that it is irrigated second drain all of these results were as compared with control.
