Abstract: The project of Persian Gulf water supply and transfer is completely agreed with water resources management policies and other important laws such as the law on encouragement of private sector investment in country water projects. To provide Eastern South industrial mineral complex water of country (Golgohar Sirjan, Mese Sarcheshmeh, Chadoramloo and Fooladsazi Yazd), it’s essential to prepare equipment to transfer water from Bandar Abas desalination center to mentioned complexes. The results of economic evaluation of this project show the project of transferring water from Persian Gulf to place of mineral industries would be justifiable on basis of national economic policies. According to the calculation, every cubic meter of water in mentioned industries in average will have the final output value (economic price) about 4/117 thousand rials. While the average economic cost spent on this project is 8/62 thousand rials for each transferred cubic meter water (counting cost of buying water from desalination). Therefore for each provided cubic meter water for those industries, the net value (subtracting expenditures of desalination and water transfer) will be about 6/54 thousands rials. Economic return rate of this project is calculated about 34/22% that is considerably higher than basic rate 7% which normally is used in economic evaluation of national water projects. The project present net value shows that implementation of this project can totally bring a net value about 2/59127 billions for national economy as well as returning total investment expenditure use and maintenance of transferring lines and water desalination.
