Nag River

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

Forming a part of the Kanhan-Pench river system, the Nag River originates in Lava hills near wadi and the confluence point of Nag and Pioli rivers is near Pawangaon, and the confluence point of Nag and Kanhan River is near Sawangi village.[1] In November 2015, various efforts have been made to restore the river to the city's heritage list from which it was removed in 2001.[2]

The river serves as drainage for Nagpur and as a result its ecosystem is heavily polluted by urban waste from the city
