Abstract: Iran is located in arid and semi-arid of the world and it has shortage of freshwater resources. So, to review the status of water use and protection of water resources against pollution, especially in the global water crisis is necessary and vital. Zayandehrud River as the largest river of the central plateau of Iran and the most important surface water flow in Isfahan province, which preserving its quality is important because of agriculture - environmental, industry and drinking. In this regard, the assessment of the quality of the 15 stations in the Zayandehrud river basin has been done by using the analysis of physical and chemical parameters to during 5 decades from 1967-2009. Surveying the results shows thatdrinking water quality based on the diagram Schuler is good and acceptable. Regarding agriculture and irrigation, according to Wilcox diagram, except for two stations Hossein Abad and Henjin which were salty)C3S1), the other stations suitable were a bit salty but suitable for agriculture (C2S1). Water quality of ten stations has been hard water; four stations fairly hard and the only Henjin station has been estimated quite hard. The type and faces of this basin water have beenchock bicarbonate at 13 stations and in two stations Hossein Abad and Henjin have been sodic sulfate and Magnesium Sulfated. Qualitative classification of stations based on both industrial and according to Langelier index is estimated to be corrosive except Hossein Abad station that has been deposited.
