Assessment of a Closed Tidal River: Case Study- Little Feni River in Bangladesh

South Noakhali is a tidal area. Salinity is its nature. But this is very harmful for local flora and fauna. For that reason a closure is to be constructed on Little Feni River. Here a study is commenced to assess the current situation. The salinity attacked area lies on the east and west bank of Little Feni River. It is bounded by Feni Sadar, Daganbhuiyan, Senbagh Upazila on the north, Mirsharai, Sonagazi Upazila on the East, Noakhali Sadar, Bashurhat Upazila on the west and Bay of Bengal on the South. There is a regulator in Musapur Union to control the flow of Little Feni River.
