A total area of 342.2 km square of the Selbe River is located in the most populated area with ger districts. The soil contamination levels of the river are lower from north to south, meaning the river pollution levels rise as it becomes closer to the city centre. The heads of the Citizens Representative Khural discussed the petition and made an announcement to register the total area of 2.071.5 hectares of Selbe River in Sukhbaatar District as a Natural Reserve and ordered the City Major`s office to take control over the protection.
