The Brahmani River is regarded as a prime seasonal river in Odisha. It has been formed by the confluence of South Koel and Sankh River and flows in the district of Kendujhar, Sundargarh, Cuttack, Dhenkanal and Jajapur. Along with rivers of Baitarani and Mahanadi, it also forms a large delta and then it enters Bay of Bengal at Dhamra.
This Brahmani River is formed through the confluence of South Koel as well as Sankh Rivers near the industrial town of Raurkela. This river has its origins from Chhattisgarh to Jharkhand border which is not very far from Netarahat Plateau. This South Koel arises in Jharkhand near Lohardaga. It is situated on the adjacent side of the watershed and that gives rise to Damodar River. You can easily get to these sources as they are present near the Nagpur Chota Plateau. Moreover, this site is regarded as Brahmani's mythological site and it is one of the reputed places where great Sage Parashara had felt in love with the daughter of a fisherman named as Satyavati who gave birth to Ved Vyasa, the Maharashtra compiler.
There is a Barrage named after the Talcher which was called as the Samal Barrage. Moreover, with this Jenapur anicuts along with Jokadia are some of the prime irrigation projects on this river.
