                                Information regarding rivers in Districts

NAME OF RIVER  Details
Wainganga The source streams of the Wainganga rise in the Chhindwara and Seoni Plateaus of Madhya Pradesh; the river flows south through the Balaghat district before entering Bhandara district at its northern extreme. It initially flows west along the northern boundary, then turns south-west and gradually southwards through the Bhandara tahsil. Before leaving the district to enter Chandrapur, the river runs south-east. Thus, the Wainganga drains mainly the western parts of the district.
Bawanthadi

The Bawanthadi river rises in the Kurai plateau of Seoni district (Madhya Pradesh) flows south, enters the district at the north-western limit of the boundry, and runs east forming the northern boundary for a distance of 48 km before falling into the Wainganga. Through small and seasonal in its upper course the river after entering this district, is fed by numerous hills torrents and is perennial. It drains the north-western parts of the district around Ambagad and Chandrapur. The river has low banks and hence, in floods, overflows the banks. Quicksands occur in many parts of the river bed.

Garhvi The Garhvi nadi, also known as the Itiadoh nadi, rises in the granitic plateau of Chichgarh in the south-eastern part of Sakoli tahsil and flows west in a deep and narrow valley. As it flows past the village Palasgaon, the Valley opens out, but about 15 km downstream, it cuts through a quartzite spur of the Nawegaon hills in a deep gorge; the panorama from the Pratapgad fort eastwards as the river rushes out from the gorge is a pleasant sight to watch. The river continues further south, opening out into a wide valley with shallow banks to enter into the Chandrapur district before joining the Wainganga. The river has a flow of 60 km. through this district.
