Growing process of humanity’s necessity of drinking water and lack of water is involving the whole regions. The water need of mankind is increasing day by day.  Increasing number of world population and intensification of the world industry are the main reasons for this case. Although in the international documents of human rights[1] and other international agreements it has been noted that the right for drinking water is considered as one of the most primary natural rights of the human-being, this right of human has not been providing sufficiently yet. Initially the water was used as a beverage and for national economy (agriculture, industry, domestic services), but along with the flourishing of science began the process of using trans boundary waters for hydro energetic goals and the building of big hydroelectric facilities caused several actual international law issues. The 60s of the XX century was the high point of building of such kind of hydro electric dams. By turn this began to create the coordination of criterions and orders of the usage of trans boundary waters and new orders for providing ecological security.
