There are two sounds in the range, henceforth the name "Bais". The shore line is for the most part mangroves, which are in threat of demolition because of the expanding populace. The extravagance of marine life in the inlets is a result of these mangroves. Bais City's coves are broadly known not a standout amongst the most excellent coral reefs in the zone. The Pelarta River keeps running close to the downtown area. The stream has been the wellspring of watering system water for the close-by sugar ranches. This has been basic in the accomplishment of sugar manors around there. This stream additionally impacts the city's topography, as it stores silt in the previous mangrove zones amid the (once yearly) surge season. These previous mangrove swamps have now dried out and get to be populated with occupants. In the late seventies, under the administration of Genaro Goñi, there was set up a waterway control framework extending from the downtown area towards the low-lying zones so as to diminish flooding amid the blustery season. Bais City is the biggest maker of crude sugar in Negros Oriental. There are two sugar factories in the city.
