Abstract

By limiting the water resources and frequent droughts, disruption of interaction between humans and their environment, yeoman ownership manner, deep and semi-deep wells drilled in the range of aqueducts, forgetting the many well and good traditions associated with aqueducts, these factors caused the aqueduct role be fade in the villages, and also caused to lack of attention of beneficiaries to participation issue in regenerating restoration and upgrading of the aqueducts. Therefore some contribution should be done in this area. Today, contribution practices in some villages is become a tradition and customs. And usually partnership based on share of water and level of beneficiary ownership of aqueduct water is considered as a measure for assessing participation. In this regard, the present study was conducted to determine the effect of social and economic participation of beneficiaries in the restoration and repair of aqueducts in Sarbishe city. Findings from descriptive analyzes indicate that social and economic participation of beneficiaries in the regeneration and repair of the aqueducts was 7/46%, and 7/32, respectively, which participation has been made in a relatively high level. The analytical findings indicate that there is a significant and negative relationship between social involvement (P = -0/457 **, r = 0/000) and economic participation of beneficiaries (p = -0/413 * *, r = 0/000) with dependent variable of the restoration and repair of aqueducts, that this negative relationship could be due to lack of funds and the necessary facilities and specialists to restore and repair of aqueducts.
