The study focused on the Naameh river basin due to its significant role in preserving the agricultural and Bedouin environment in the region. It provides water for irrigation, agriculture, and human consumption, while also having environmental consequences. With a deep understanding of the natural characteristics of the region and a thorough assessment of its specific requirements for a water harvesting project, it is crucial to consider the necessary natural conditions and their precise measurements. Considering the slope, terrain, water network size, and historical loss of water towards the street lake without any benefit, it is evident that there have been significant issues with water management in the previous years. Considering the information provided, this study proposes the implementation of a water harvesting project to address the scarcity of water in the region and fulfill the basic needs of the population.
