Nature has always proven that it is able to overcome its problems. However, human manipulation has led to environmental degradations. The dryness of a thousand-year Urmia Lake (a brinewater lake in Iran) is an example of environmental degradation that happened due to successive droughts and construction of dams on the basin of this lake. This study examines methods for the revival of Urmia Lake,by making use of the water gathered behind the dam of Urmia Lake for agricultural purposes. This examination will be carried out by constructing several green plants around this lake over 20 years. The cost and amount of this construction project is analyzed with MATLAB software and by using the Ant Colony Algorithm.
