	  abstract     = {Scarcity of water resources and huge costs of
establishing new hydraulic installations necessitate optimal
exploitation from existing reservoirs. Sustainable management and
efficient exploitation from existing finite water resources are
important factors in water resource management, particularly in the
periods of water insufficiency and in dry regions, and on account of
competitive allocations in the view of exploitation management. This
study aims to minimize reservoir water release from a determined
rate of demand. A numerical model for water optimal exploitation
has been developed using GAMS introduced by the World Bank and
applied to the case of Meijaran dam, northern Iran. The results
indicate that this model can optimize the function of reservoir
exploitation while required water for lower parts of the region will be
supplied. Further, allocating optimal water from reservoir, the
optimal rate of water allocated to any group of the users were
specified to increase benefits in curve dam exploitation.},
