Of all the natural disasters, drought is the most gradual and the most hard to predict. Further reported that not only climate change but also several human activities foster drought in Iran . It is a recurrent event in some parts of the country, but the northwest region is more prone to drought area because of its high rainfall variability. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the drought crisis, social problems caused by the drought management strategies to reduce the adverse effects of drought on human societies. In analyzing the data for this field study was conducted and the descriptive statistics and inferential statistical methods were used. Resources in this area included 30 aqueducts are represented as their quarterly rate measured from the water samples they tested every six months also according to the results obtained from the water for every shows the quality of ground water extracted has been declining. In this paper, first the definitions and concepts of drought zero sum Vtfhs been studied and different perspectives on disaster management and risk management strategies that can change the material and end the use of a variety of drinking water in and needs of the waters of the needs of the quality agricultural the industrial city be solved. Also suggestions on effective to deal with it, and drought management are presented.
