Abstract: Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic Bacteria is a serious public health issue. Various factors contribute to the spread of antibiotic-resistance microorganisms in the environment. This study was aimed for detection of multi drug resistance Escherichia coli in drinking water samples from 12th district of Kabul city. Water sample is taken in Simple Random Sampling. The population size of drinking water sampling is N=378 and by using of Epi – info program, the water sample is selected and so, the sample size of water sample is 378 samples, therefore 126 water sample from house hold, 126 samples from supplies and 126 samples from collection tankers of 12th district of Kabul city.

Maximum resistance was observed against Nalidixic acid (64.3%) followed by ampicilline) 59.5%), Ciprofloxacin, (57.1%. It is also remarkable that percentage of Escherichia coli in different sources of 12th district of Kabul city such as house hold, supplies and collection tanker was as follows: 27.1%, 30.8% and 41.9%%. In conclusion this study found that contaminated percentage of drinking water in 12th district of Kabul city was higher 64.3% and presence of E. coli is higher in tanker collection and antibiotic resistance is higher against Nalidix acid.
