A more scientific approach is yet to be introduced for Tlawng River that harbours an array of species, which bore the brunt of illegal dumpings to throwing of garbage. As such the inhabitants gradually succumbed to the poison of plastics.

Tlawng River is a tributary of River Kaladan. It originates from Zopui Hill near Zobawk (Near Lunglei) at an elevation of 1,395 metres and flows in north direction to enter in Assam. The River passes through five districts of the state forming district boundary lines while running along its course. Since this river passes through the Aizawl district and flanks the eastern side of the State capital. The city of Aizawl lies in the Tlawng valley, hence this river is a major source of potable water for this District.
