Abstract

The results showed that the monthly average of Ascaris lumbricoides eggs, Enterobius vermicularis, freeliving nematodes and Dicrocoelium dendriticum in the effluent of wastewater treatment plant, were 9.86, 2.64, 2.89 and 8.47 eggs per liter, respectively. The average number of parasitic eggs in the effluent of wastewater treatment plant was less than one. As a result, the efficiency of the treatment plant in their removal was 95.61, 100, 97.25, and 95.70, respectively and can easily meet the standards for reuse in agricultural irrigation (Angleburg Index: Nematode Egg: � 1 in liters). © 2018 MPH.
