Summary Heavy metal contamination of water is considered as a potential threat to the human health. The objective of the study is to evaluate quality of water by using pollution index (PI) at different seasons, from autumn 2014 to summer 2015. Fe+2, Mn+2, Zn+2, Cu+2, Pb+2 are studied for this goal. The area under study is two sites. Site I, in front of the Sugar Cane Factory at El-Hawamdia (Latitude 29°52'31"N and Longitude 31°17'3"E) which receive all the fermented waste products. Site II, in the front of electricity station at Shobra El-Khima (Latitude 30° 7'29"N and Longitude 31°14'4" E) which suffers from the thermal pollution, El-Kanater El-Khairia city (30°11'1"N and Longitude 31° 8'20 "E) is considered as a reference site.
