ABN/NBA - Système Observation Cycle Hydrologique du Bassin du Niger (Niger-HYCOS) - SIH/HIS

Monthly hydrological Buletin. February 2018

ABN/ Suivi Hydrologique

The hydrological situation in the Niger basin during the month of February 2018 was characterized by drastic decrease in water level in the entire sub-basins. This situation is more critical in the Upper Basin compare to the previous years with a decrease in flows to ecologically disturbing levels (severe low water levels) thus disrupting the proper functioning of ecosystems.

This situation will definitely impact the level of flood in Inner Delta and Middle Niger where it was observed flow lower than the five year dry period.

Meanwhile, in the Lower Niger in Nigeria the situation is normal as a result of normal rainfall recorded is this part of the Basin and also water releases from Kainji, Jebba and Shiroro Dams.

The Selingue Dam in Mali and Kainji Dam in Nigeria have started releasing of water so as to support low flow downstream.
