    ABSTRACT: These instructions give you guidelines for preparing determination of optimum path by considering technical and engineering, environment and cost management visions. In this point of view from Taleghan’s dam to Hashtgerd New City case study, we need to distinguish and apply the essential parameters such as topographic and morphologic conditions, environmental issues by consideration on sustainable development, population distribution patterns, roads and etc. by using base map and extraction of expected points geometrical location from Google Earth, position land surveying done. Then the mentioned co-parameters data layer loaded in GIS environment and after allocation the special coefficient and value for weighting parameters and combine them based on MCE method and the cost map made based on AHP method which Lead to determination of optimum path by using LCPA method. Paths include of ABFA path and two evaluated optimum path compared and indicated that two optimum paths overlapped mostly. Cost comparison between optimum path and ABFA path imply 14% decrease in expenditure Which the main extra expense of ABFA path due to more intersection with rivers, roads and necessity construct of structures to keep water natural regimes, passing unauthorized areas and personal parcels need to pay, path finding only by personal experience underestimating academic science, data analyzing software’s which Cause to increasing the length of water supply pipeline.
