The main objective of this study is obtaining the up-to-date information for water resources of Kordestan Province, Iran. For this purpose a hydrological model namely daily assessment of water resources was applied. Using the daily rainfall data, a term called "the effective rainfall" was calculated. Based on the calculated term, the specifying factors of the daily condition of water resources were assigned as follows: available water resources, drought severity and flood possibility. Establishing regression relations between mentioned factors, classification of the region was completed in GIS. The results of current study may help decision and policy makers as well as consumers of the water resources effectively.
