    A critical aspect of qualitative management of water resources is the optimal waste load allocation in a river system. Zarrineh Rud is one of the crucial, permanent, water-rich rivers in West Azerbaijan province in the northwest of Iran and the Urmia lake basin. In this study, with the aim of quality management of Zarrineh Rud river, QUAL2K computer simulation model was used. The simulation parameters in this study included discharge, DO, BOD, NO3, NH4, PO4, which were collected from 5 sampling stations S1, S2, S3, S4 and S5 in spring and summer. The results showed that the amount of oxygen saturated solution of Zarrineh River varied between 7-8 mg / l, which is higher than the maximum standard value required. The results showed that BOD could increase by 16% in spring and summer, respectively, and should decrease by 70% in summer to meet the required standard. The station S5 at the river downstream with 3.53 mg/L dissolved oxygen deficit was the most critical point for cold-water fish farming, and the 26th kilometer of the river with a dissolved oxygen deficit of 2.05mg/L was the most critical point for maintaining the aquatic life; therefore, some scenario must be developed for waste load reduction at this station. In order to improve the quality of Zarrineh River, construction of a wastewater treatment plant is necessary for Miandoab sugar factory, villages adjacent to the river and also slaughterhouse.

    The most important objectives of the present study include finding a legal solution to prevent the spread of coronavirus, compensation for damages caused by the negligence of human factors, determining the basis for this responsibility, and the rate of compensation for these damages. The present study, through library and field studies, made it possible to compensate for the damage caused by the spread of coronavirus infections. Pollution caused by a human is one of the most important environmental law challenges. Neglect of the human factor has caused losses due to the spread of this disease. In the present study by preparing a researcher-made questionnaire, the opinion of lawyers specializing in the field of civil responsibility was also inquired. The results of the research show that by resorting to the "risk theory" and the "fault assumption" basis, the rights of the victims of the Coronavirus can be better secured. At present, legal systems are not sufficiently determined to compensate the victims of the Coronavirus. While environmental jurists believe that strict rules and regulations should be applied to combat the spread of coronavirus infection and to impose compensation for damages caused by negligence in observing health standards on its human factors. In Iran, several juridical and legal rules are a good basis for preventing the spread of coronavirus and human infections.
