Abstract: 

Evaluation of surface water quality is a complex process undertaking multiple parameters. Converting great amount of parameters into a simpler expression and enabling easy interpretation of data are the main purposes of water quality indices. The main aim of this study is to plan effective water resources management system for Karun River by combination of CCMEWQI and Geographic Information System (GIS). The investigation was carried out to set a management plan through exploratory and spatial analysis of physicochemical water parameters of collected samples from 10 stations over one year period. Since all indices were obtained from index, river zoning was conducted by GIS. Moreover, trace metals concentrations (As, Cr, Cd, Fe, Zn, Mn, and Al) ranged in safer limit. The highest values of F1 belonged to aquatic life and the lowest ones belonged to irrigation. Aquatic life and drinking uses received the maximum values of F2. The lowest values were devoted to livestock and then recreation uses. It was inferred from index that the quality of the Karun River is principally impacted by high turbidity, TDS, NO3, SO4, and PO4 due to high suspended sediment loads. The main cause is incremental agricultural, industrial, and residential effluents. Amongst stations, station one only received the priority for drinking water supply and recreation.
