Hai River

River, Hebei province, China.

A short part of the Bai River, the name Hai properly belongs only to the stream from Tianjin that flows into the Bo Hai some 43 mi (70 km) away. It is, however, also used as the general name for the system of tributary streams that discharge into the sea through this channel. Because of the streams' heavy inflow, the Hai River often floods; in 1939 Tianjin was submerged for a month. The river is now the site of a comprehensive water-control project.
