After analysis of samples, obtained data was used for evaluating water quality r using the Water Quality Index (NSFWQI) and Surface Water Quality Index (IRWQISC).
Results: The water quality of Mashkyd dam based on the IRWQISC index was “relatively good” in all stations in spring and it was “good quality” grade in other seasons. Also, according to the NSFWQI index, the water quality was “moderate quality” in all stations and all seasons.
