In many Brazilian cities, they have used hydrologic resources as touristic attractions. The issue is that they have not had effective programs or actions in their observations, as well as the public politics in which they relate to the preservation of the hydrologic resources, among other priorities of the local government as much as for the majority of the cities that explore the aquatic ecosystems. The objective of this paper is to understand the relationship between the authorities of the public, along with the hydrologic resources used as touristic attractions in two cities by the name of Pontal Paranapamena, Presidente Epitácio, and Rosana. In these cities, they possess beaches in their rivers and/or reservations which are part of the touristic routes called Circuito Oeste Rios, with that said, there are programs destined for the preservation of the aquatic ecosystems and the guaranteed use of the waters, viewed in Politica Nacional de Recursos Hidricos. There will be bibliographic and documentary research making observations, collecting data on public entities responsible for these attractions mentioned earlier, plus semi-structured interviews of those who are involved in the public management of the cities.
