Bhargavi river flows across Odisha, India. It forms the Mahanadi - Kuakhai distributary system branching off from Kuakhai and drains into the Chilka Lake.

We have the following write-up in lieu of the above in another wiki page:

A branch of Kuakhai meets the sea of Bay of Bengal after breaking up into numerous distributaries in the last two and half miles of its course. There are four main branches all branching off from the left bank viz. Kanchi, the East Kania, the Naya Nadi and the South Kanchi (which drains into Sar Lake); and by various channel the first three are interconnected and finally join the Suna Munhi river which falls into Bali Harchandi and ultimately drains to the Bay of Bengal sea via the mouth of Chilika. The South Kania gets lost in the marshes on the western shore of Chilika.
