Recently as per direction from department of environment, steps are being taken to perform chemical test of under ground water and water from outside boundary drain by Bogura Regional Laboratory, Bogura under Environment Department. Water flows at a quantity of 2,300 m3/h through an 8 kilometer long canal to Fulbari and Nawabganj Upazila. During dry season this water is used for irrigation over an adjacent area of nearly 30,000 (Thirty Thousands) acres. Owing to existence of trees and plants and prevalence of favourable environment in the mine area, seasonal birds throng here to build nestles and expand their species; this has created a pleasing environment in the area.
