Excerpt from Census of India, 1961: Punjab District Census Handbook No. 4, Karnal District
By and large, the district is a ﬂat alluvial plan. It is traversed from north to south by the water-shed separating the drainage of the Jamuna river from that of the Ghaggar river. Located from six to twelve miles from the Jamuna, the water-shed is not easily perceptible. To the east of the water-shed lies the riverain tract of the Jamuna, called the Khadar. It is a low-lying area of new alluvium and marks the western limit of the excur sions of the Jamuna. The soil is light and water is close to the surface rendering sinking of wells easy. The area is liable to ﬂoods. The altitude of the plain gradually decreases from north to south about 2 feet to a mile.
