Sistan region is specifically important because of the complete dependence on the Hirmand border River and international Hamoon wetland, which have been recorded in Ramsar Convention. Hirmand River’s water fluctuated in past years and was competed between domestic, agricultural and environmental user’s intricate water management in this region. To help decision-makers in this situation, the first aim was to complete realization of water resources system of region and its changing after the first version. The second purpose was making decision-support-system for better management. Since the actual river flowed, the data are often low; they correlate and depend yearly, and monthly. First step of water resources planning and managing in a region is to make the data similar to historical data. Therefore, using 50-year data and different methods Hirmand River data simulated and Copula model was selected for Sistan and Paryan River flow modeling. Then second version of decision support system of water resources management in Sistan was made and it is used for scenario analysis. Then, Decision support system of Chah Nimeh reservoir, which was made by stochastic dynamic programming and optimal water release for agricultural sector, was determined. The results showed policies like water transitions with pipe, making irrigation network and dredging have positive effect on increasing water resources and decreasing water shortages in agriculture, drinking water and the environment sectors. However, the fourth Chahnimeh increased evaporation and decreased water supply. Although increasing domestic and agricultural supply without efficiency growth decreases the environmental flows
