Identify the sources of drinking water for the city of Dezful (southwest of Iran)

Naser Ebadati

Iran is one of the semi-arid areas and shortage of water resources is considered. And identify and manage sources of the most important things.The water quality of Dez River is one of the major concerns of the area and for Dezful city. This study was carried out using evaluation based water sampling and statistics result. A number of 394 samples were analyzed and the concentration of physical and chemical parameters including pH, TDS,EC, total cations and anions were measured.The obtained results were examined and compared based on the analyses consistent with the World Health Organization (WHO) standards. Dez River water quality has been “Perfect” in most cases on the basis of TDS and considering the average sum total of them amounting to 644 mg/l during the mentioned period; indeed only in 2% of the statistical periods the water quality has been determined as Acceptable, while most of the water quality parameters have been within the permissible range of the WHO standards.

Entomology and Applied Science Letters is an international peer reviewed publication which publishes scientific research & review articles related to insects that contain information of interest to a wider audience, e.g. papers bearing on the theoretical, genetic, agricultural, medical and biodiversity issues. Emphasis is also placed on the selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance. Papers on non-insect groups are no longer accepted. In addition to full-length research articles and reviews, the journal publishes interpretive articles in a Forum section, Short Communications, and Letters to the Editor. The journal publishes reports on all phases of medical entomology and medical acarology, including the systematics and biology of insects, acarines, and other arthropods of public health and veterinary significance.

Call for Papers
Entomology and Applied Science Letters supports the submission of entomological papers that contain information of interest to a wider reader groups e. g. papers bearing on taxonomy, phylogeny, biodiversity, ecology, systematic, agriculture, morphology. The selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance is also important. Distinguished entomologists drawn from different parts of the world serve as honorary members of the Editorial Board. The journal encompasses all the varied aspects of entomological research. This has become the need felt in scientific research due to the emphasis on intra-, inter-, and multi-disciplinary approach.
