Juba Hydrometric data

The main objectives of the Hydrometry Project were to try and re-rate all the National Hydrometric stations on the Jubba and Shebelli rivers to maintain a reliable and continous hydrological database to ensure reliable calculations and planning of development projects in aid of the future of agriculture in Somalia.The Project covers the area of Somalia dependant upon the Jubba and Shebelli rivers for its water. These two rivers drain the eastern slopes of the Ethiopian Plateau to the west of Somalia, and are the only sources of surface water which is available for large scale irrigation development in Somalia.

Shabelle Hydrometric Data

(Extract from preface)The Hydrometry Project TCP/SOM/8906 was born after the visit to Somalia of the Hydrologist Jean C. Henry in 1979, to evaluate irrigation potential along the Juba and shebelli rivers. During this study the Hydrometric data base was questioned as regards both its validity and representativity. The first steps taken to rectify the situation was the formulation of the Hydrometry Project and its implementation in January 1980. The main objectives of the Hydrometry Project were to try and re-rate all the National Hydrometric stations on the Jubba and Shebelli rivers.
