According to the condition of water resources regionalization and ecological function regionalization, the ecological functions of the third class water resources regions were studied. The determining rules of ecological functions of water resources regions were developed by superimposing the water resources region map and the ecological function zoning map. Based on the rules, the dominant ecological function and the assistant ecological function of each water resources region were obtained. Then, based on the ecological functions of water resources regions, the threshold value of water resources utilization ratio can be determined. By comparing the threshold value of water utilization ratio with the actual value of water utilization ratio, it was concluded that the rationality degree of China’s water resources development and utilization presented obvious regional characteristics. The rationality degree in the east area was lower than that in the west area, and it was lower in the north area than in the south area.

Key words: ecological function, threshold value, water resources regionalization, water resources utilization ratio
