In recent decades population
increasing and development of agriculture and also being mountainous and climatic
characteristics of Sefieddasht plain and also nonuniform distribution of rainfall
in study area have led to irregular use of groundwater resources in study area.
This issue has led to critical condition of groundwater resources in Sefieddasht
plain. This research was carried out to determine the suitable areas for
artificial recharge in Sefieddasht plain. Four factors namely, alluvial
quality, alluvial thickness, slope, and infiltration rate parameters were
explored and maps produced and classified using GIS. Fuzzy logic model was used
to determine the suitable areas for artificial recharge. Finally land use maps were used as a filter. Based on results 4.12% of region was recognized as
suitable area for artificial recharge.
