Nag River

Nag River is a river flowing through the city of Nagpur in Maharashtra, India. It is known for providing etymology for the name Nagpur.

Forming a part of Kanhan-Pench river system, Nag river originates in Ambazari lake and confluences to Pili River before pouring into Kanhan river.[1] Recently various efforts are being made to bring Nag river into city's heritage list, where it got knocked out in 2001. [2]

The river serves as a drainage for the city of Nagpur. Its ecosystem is extremely polluted by urban waste pollution from Nagpur.
