The month of October was characterized by the beginning of a decline in flow situation at the Upper Niger and the Lower Niger Sub- Basins.  While the Inner Delta and the Middle Niger Sub – Basins witnessed increasing flow due to the incoming Guinean black flood.
The filling of the Selingué reservoir in Mali and the Kainji reservoir in Nigeria is in progress and has both reached normal reservoir capacity 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 of Niger Basin Authority. (NBA)
The flow analysis situation was carried out by dividing the basin into three (4) sub-catchments also represented with reference gauging stations as follows: Upper Niger at Koulikoro (Mali), Inland Delta at Dire (Mali), Middle Niger at Niamey (Niger) and Lower Niger at Lokoja (Nigeria)
