Country Overview

1.1.1.WATER RESOURCES Nigeria is well drained, with a close network of rivers and streams. Some of these, particularly the smaller ones in the north, are seasonal. There are four principal surface water basins in Nigeria: -The Niger basin has an area of 584,193km2 within central and northwestern Nigeria, covering 63 per cent of the total area of the country. The most important rivers in the basin are the Niger and its tributaries the Benue, the Sokoto the and Kaduna; -The Lake Chad basin in the northeast with an area of 179,282km2, or 20 per cent of the total area of Nigeria, is the only internal drainage basin in the country. Important rivers are the Komadougou Yobe and its tributaries the Hadejia, the Jama’are and the Komadougou Gena; -The southwestern littoral basins have an area of 101,802km2, which is 11 per cent of the country’s total area. The rivers originate in the hilly areas to the south and west of the Niger River; -The southeastern littoral basins have an area of 58,493km2, which is 6 per cent of the total area of the country. Their major watercourses are the Cross and Imo Rivers and they receive much of their runoff from the plateau and mountain areas along the Cameroon border. Nigeria has extensive groundwater resources, located in eight recognized hydrogeological areas and local groundwater in shallow alluvial (fadama) aquifers adjacent to major rivers: -The Sokoto basin zone comprises sedimentary rocks in northwest Nigeria. Yields range from below 1.0 to 5.0L/s; -The Chad basin zone comprises sedimentary rocks. There are three distinct aquifer zones: upper, middle and lower. Borehole yields are about 1.2 to 1.6L/s from the upper unconfined aquifer and 1.5 to 2.1L/s from the middle aquifer; -The middle Niger basin zone comprises sandstone aquifers yielding between 0.7 and 5.0L/s and the Alluvium in the Niger Valley yielding between 7.5 and 37.0L/s; -The Benue basin zone is the least exploited basin in Nigeria, extending from the Cameroon border to the Niger-Benue confluence. The sandstone aquifers in the area yield between 1.0 and 8.0L/s. -The southwestern zone comprises sedimentary rocks bounded in the south by the coastal Alluvium and in the north by the basement complex; -The south-central zone is made up of cretaceous and tertiary sediments centred on the Niger Delta. Yields are from 3.0 to 7.0L/s; -The southeastern zone comprises cretaceous sediments in the Anambra and Cross River basins. Borehole numbers are low due to abundant surface water resources; -The basement complex comprises over 60 per cent of the country’s area. It consists of low permeability rocks and groundwater occurs in the weathered mantle and fracture zones with yields of between 1.0 and 2.0L/s. Lake Chad is an important wetland lying in the semi-arid Sahel corridor. With a mean depth of 3.9m, its surface area is highly variable, ranging from a minimum of 2,000km2 in 1907 to a maximum of 22,000km2 in 1961. Low-lying areas flooded during the wet season, known as fadama areas, are scattered across the ecological zones of Guinea Savanna, Sudan Savanna, and the Sahel. These diverse wetlands are valuable for grazing, agriculture, and other municipal uses, and are deemed of international importance as breeding grounds for migratory birds. Nigeria’s total annual renewable water resources are estimated at 286.2km3. Annual internally produced resources amount to 221km3, made up of 214km3 surface water and 87km3 groundwater. Around 80km3 of the latter is assumed to be overlap between surface and groundwater. External water resources are estimated at 65.2km3/yr, including surface water from Niger, Cameroon and Benin. Exploitable surface water resources are estimated to be 80 per cent of the natural flow, which is about 96km3/yr. Annual extractable groundwater resources are about 59.51km3, distributed as follows: 10.27km3 in northern Nigeria; 25.48km3 in the middle belt; 23.76km3 in the south. Dam capacity is estimated to be 44.2km3.

1.1.2.WATER USE Total annual water withdrawal was estimated to be 8km3 in 2000. Agriculture was the biggest water user with 5.5km3, or 69 per cent of the total water withdrawal, followed by municipalities with about 1.7km3 (21 per cent) and industry with 0.8km3 (10 per cent)
