Water is a valuable and vital element especially in arid and semi arid region of Iran. Due to scarcity of these substantial elements in most part of Iran there are water distribution systems established for rightful use of water. These systems have been formed according to users demand climatic condition current water supplies arable lands area and water distribution methods. Water distribution system is an institution which has been formed and created during evolution of agricultural societies gradually and preexist issue of social and economical of arid and semi arid regions residents. In arid region of Iran water distribution systems have fundamental similarities but there also are some distinctions which lead to study these systems individually. It is worth to say that operational system of Qanats has long history without any governmental or institutional support and are active yet.
