Hyrogeological drought is a natural hazard that develops when groundwater systems are affected by drought., First the groundwater recharge is decreased. Then the groundwater levels and finally, groundwater discharge by rivers and springs are decreased or stopped. This research analysed the effects of artificial recharge of groundwater on temporal and spatial distribution of hydrogeological droughts using Piezometric State Index (PSI) in Garbaygan plain. The results of this study showed that the efficiency of flood spreading systems for reduction of groundwater level drop caused by droughts, limited to the initial years exclusively andsevere hydrogeological droughts have gradually been initiating since 1376 to 1387 in the south of the implemented flood spreading project.
