Water scarcity is one important problem among many water problems that are present today and will be even more noticeable in the future. Many developing countries have investigated water resources projects to satisfy their demand in water. There is no enough financial capability to execute all these projects in one lot, so it is important to elaborate a priority execution plan related to these projects to identify the sequence of projects to be executedin order of priority (priority preorder). First the conditions required for an accurate priority preorder elaboration are outlined and the evaluations of the different goals or criteria are presented. Then an appropriate methodology to determine the priority preorders of water resources projects with respect to the defined criteria is developed. Lastly, an example of application is given in order to examine the various steps of the proposed methodology and its applicability is discussed.
