Abstract

The research was conducted with the aim of assessing the environmental impacts of artificial feeding plans of Hammami Plain in Fars Province in Iran. In this paper, EIA was undertaken using the ICOLD matrix. In this method, the effect of each project activity on the environmental components in the region was assessed in two stages; project construction and operation based on physical, ecological, socio-economic, and cultural environments. Findings indicate that positive effects will be generally exerted on the environment of the region by establishing and operating artificial feeding plans in Hammami Plain. In other words, the existence of negative impacts on the environment, will mean substantial positive impacts will be seen in the region consequently; the rise in the average level of aquifer, enhancement of agricultural wells, and development of agriculture in the region, to name a few.
