The rivers Bhadar, Ozat, Minsar and Sambli forms deltaic zones as the coastal areas are low lying and gets flooded during the monsoon. During high tide the seawater rushes into these areas through small creeks. River water flow is present only for one month during the monsoon; consequently it creates permanent saline condition creek.
