About Saving Sola Beel: Sola beel is collectively referred to, two patches of wetlands situated at the city centre of Guwahati . The two wetlands are separated from each by settlements in between. The wetland on the western side is called Sarusola beel (26.175151°, 91.742947°), and the one on the eastern side is Barsola Beel (26.174290°, 91.746891°). The wetland area of Sarusola beel is around 28,000 sq. meter and that of  Barsola Beel is around  75,000 sq meter.  Both of these water bodies are situated near Paltanbazar area

The Barsola beel is the largest lake in the city of Guwahati and is connected with number of drains at various locations through secondary and tertiary drain, though majority of discharge received through the culvert near Nepali Mandir. Chandmari Drain, Rehabari Drain and connecting combined sewage drains from surrounding areas outfalls into the Beel.

For Sarusola beel the majority of discharge is received from south near KC Das Commerce College. Drains coming from Athgaon, Chatribari, Tokabari and surrounding areas and connecting combined
sewage drains from surrounding areas outfalls into the Beel.

These urban water bodies were once the habitat for a large number of flora and fauna which has now almost vanished due to degredation and encroachment activities. These wetlands are the storm water reservoirs and can help reduce flash floods of the city and also acts as a ground water recharge units for a the city, reeling under ever depleting ground water.
