Introduction
 The Bangshi River (also spelt Bansi) encompasses the western periphery of Savar town. It is originated at Jamalpur from the course of the old Brahmaputra. At upstream the Bangshi is connected via the Dhaleswari-Pungli river to the greater Jamuna floodplain, and at downstream it is connected through the Tongi river with the Buriganga-Meghna river system. Hydrologically, the Bangshi river is not an isolated river because many other rivers are connected with the Bangshi and influence its flow. It is hydrologically connected with Buriganga, Dhaleswari, Kaliganga, Karnatali, Lauhajang, Tongi Khal and Turag. The Turag-Bangshi River making all the low areas becomes a connected sheet of water in the monsoon. At present, industrialization can be observed almost all over Dhaka. The industries are situated near the rivers surrounding the Dhaka city.
