The Eia flows in a broad valley through the Kubano-Priazovskaia (Prikubanskaia) Lowland. It flows mainly when the snow is thawing; it dries up in summer. In its lower reaches the valley is marsh-ridden. The water in the river is salty. The average annual water discharge is approximately 2.5 cu m per sec (at Kuschevskaia stanitsa [large cossack village]).
