River Kosi flows through Supaul. After the construction of Kosi Dam the flood situation has improved in Supaul. In the year 2008 the river Kosi changed its course and took the route it used to take 200 years ago. As a result major parts of Supaul districts were flooded. These were the worst floods since 1954.
