Watershed Management Studies & Flood Spread in Adori Bam Basin &AnarodRafsanjan Basin

The project aimedat mitigating the flood damage and prevent groundwater depletion by controlling and routing the floods by an upstream dyke and using the surface water potential for aquifer rechargein downstream. For this purpose, a dyke at the most downstream mountain canyon before the river reaches the plain gorge was designed. Beside, flood dispersion structures were designed to spread out the routed flood water on 3000 ha of alluvial plain for aquifer recharge.
