Abstract: This paper takes up the issue of water resources and their exploitation in ancient Assyria. Although in books and papers we can usually find mentions only of the big rivers (Tigris, Great Zab and Small Zab), and possibly other irrigation canals, the author wishes to show that the question of water resources is actually much more complicated. We must take into account small streams, wadis, springs, wells, water-holes, and enclosed depressions as well. Each of these water resources plays a specific role in the landscape. We must keep in mind that rainfall was very important for the region. Assyrian kings were aware of the natural conditions of their land and they were able to handle the water resources. They were capable of modification of water management by means of canal construction.
