Abstract [en]

This paper looks at the disappearance of water resources in the arid regions from an economic development perspective. It discusses the water supply with the help of a subsurface dam in Zahedan city. The aim of this paper is to solve the problem of water shortage parallel to revision in the current distributional trend of population and the built environments. The growing population in dry metropolises is not proportional to the existing water resources and being a key reason hindering the economic development. Methods of this research are a regional hydro-social change balance program and a linear programming to supply the required water for the city and to manage it purposefully. This research conducts a case study to find the reasons of depletion of the regional water resources and to suggest a practical model. The model provides the necessary water while minimizing the major threats and maximizing the investment in the water supply projects. The result of this research encourages the arid regions to plan and construct subsurface dams as a supportive tool to meet the required water resources and consequently the economic development.
