There would be consistent high water level, with a range of 0.75 – 1.00m (Falomo & Ikorodu) over the coming days. With the steady flow rate meaning such water will majorly fluctuate between 0.75 – 1.00m levels or sometimes above, depending on the precipitation (duration and intensity) and volume of water spilled.
