Abstract

One of the important reasons of sustainable development of a region is to supply sufficient and suitable sources for different utilizations. In spite of quantity, quality of water is very significant. Evaluating origin of groundwater salinity in Rashakan plain is the purpose of this investigation. For this study 11 wells were chosen. Analysis of geological and zoning maps demonstrates that salinity in central and shouter parts of plain is much higher than standard limit. There are some reasons for salinity such as: excessive exploitation and declining the water of aquifers, high ion concentration and evaporative formation in this region.
