Abstract: 

The water basins of Karaj, Latian, and Lar dams - with an area of 843, 695, and 652 square kilometers, respectively -- include several permanent and seasonal rivers and streams which are the main sources of water supply of Tehran. These basins face serious threats now: all wastes including solid wastes as well as domestic and industrial waste water are the most important threats to the environment, especially to the surface and ground water resources. Unplanned development of cities and residential areas around these resources has caused rapid water pollution, especially from a biological standpoint.
The present study also analyzes the contradictory regulations and the overlapping among them which are considered as a threatening factor in these basins.
Such parameters as the management of the basins and the role of responsible executive organizations, dealers, and ordinary native people that are among the threatening factors are also studied. Finally, some structural, legal, executive, and managerial points are proposed.
