The growing need for water resources in Iran has caused excessive exploitation and upset the natural balance of underground
water resources. Considering that Hormozgan province is considered one of the low rainfall regions of the country, surface
water is not able to meet the province's water needs. Isin watershed is located on the northern edge of the Persian Gulf.
This basin has a continuous need to use the underground water resources of the region in order to supply water, therefore,
it has faced a drop in the underground water level and this trend has been intensifying until now.
In this research, after collecting information related to watershed management in the Isin basin and knowing its natural
features and analyzing it, various states that may be carried out without watershed management and with watershed
management have been predicted in the coming years. For this purpose, by compiling 4 scenarios and analyzing its results,
it was determined that if watershed management is implemented in the basin, the amount of infiltrated water is almost one
and a half times the amount of infiltrated water when no management is implemented in the basin. Based on this, by applying
watershed management in the Isin Basin and implementing the proposed artificial feeding operations, in a 25-year return
period, in dry years, on average 1.72 million cubic meters and in wet years, 6.63 million cubic meters per year, water
will reach the surface through precipitation. The underground water of the basin will be increased.
