Population growth and socio-economic development have caused increasing demand for water amongst different consumers. Severe loss of storage and critical conditions in some aquifers within the last two decades are the consequences of such phenomenon. The optimum use of water from aquifer and subsequently in basin levels therefore requires an optimum managem-ent on ground water resources considering the qualitative measures. The development potential for the aquifer should accordingly be set to prevent the irrecoverable damages. Following the field studies and relevant research activities, this paper presents the results of irregular water exploitation in Rafsanjan plain as a case study.
