Dwarakeswar River | দ্বারকেশ্বর নদী: Dwarakeswar River starts its journey near Madhabpur in Purulia district and enters Bankura district near Chhatna. Then it enters the southeastern part of East Bardhaman District and passes through Hooghly district.
Dwarakeswar River has a lot of sedimentation and in rainy seasons it is topped off with water. Indeed, even near Arambagh, the channel basin has been decreased by garbage and man-made activities.
The Bengal Government, in 2018, had taken up a major venture to rejuvenate six ancient rivers that had lost their course because of indiscriminate unloading of garbage and lack of required digging throughout the long term.
During the time of high tide (long periods of a rainstorm), the river Rupnarayan gets a backward surge of tidal water near Gadhiyara (Meeting point of Rupnarayan and Bhagirathi) and that backward surge of tidal water push back the river water of Dwarekeshwar near Ghatal. Dwarekeshwar comes from an area that has a chronic drought history with scanty rainfall and moves through the area which has chronic flood history.
