AbstractFour groups of albino mice Mus musculus were given drinking water containing 25,50,75 and 100%(v/v) of the liquid effluents for two months , the fifth group were given tap water as a control experiments in order to determine the effect of effluents on some reproductive aspects.The results were as follows :
1- The fertility degree has been significantly decreased as a result of increase in the concentration of polluted water .
2- A significant reduction in the number and weight of embryo, and a significant increase in the percentage of dead embryo for each female has been found with increase in the percentage of polluted water .
