The month of September has witnessed a decline in rainfall intensity in all compartments of the Niger basin. As a result, the river's water level has begun to recede especially in the Upper and Lower Niger. On the other hand, the flood wave from the upper Niger continues to fill the Inner Niger Delta causing the water level to rise.
The filling of the Selingué dams in Mali and Kainji in Nigeria are in progress and have almost at their maximum level.
The data used for the various analyses below came from hydrological observation networks of the National Hydrological Services and Dam Authorities of nine (9) member countries.
The flow analysis situation was carried out by dividing the basin into four (4) sub-catchments also represented with reference gauging stations as follows: Upper Niger at Koulikoro (Mali), Inland Delta at Dire (Mali), Middle Niger in Niamey (Niger) and Lower Niger at Lokoja (Nigeria)
