Today there is a high demand for water, particularly in arid regions, which is attributed due to
the increasing world population with its agricultural and industrial activities from the one side
and, over the last few years, increasing drought from the other side.Thus it is a priority to
investigate the proper site selection of a waste water treatment plant. In this study, locations
for the waste water treatment plant for the city of Qeshm, Hormozgan Province were
investigated. Treatment plant operation requires a number of policies, regulations and data.
The importance of the above mentioned factors are essential in consideration of site selection.
Therefore, we considered the slope of the land, elevation difference with respect to Qeshm,
land cover, land use, distance from town and additional data for this project. We gave
different weights to each data, according to AHP, and determined which slope received the
most weight value. Following this process, we categorized the data into four classes according
to the TOPSIS model. This model selects the shortest distance from the highest level of the
classes and the longest distance from the lowest class. The end result showed that the model
selected 109 km2 of Qeshm Island that would be a suitable area for creating a waste water
