  The yield and the reservoir capacity of River Owena in Ondo State were estimated using a combination of the Rippl`s mass curve and the Loucks Sequent Peak Procedure. The yield was found to be 299.99x106m3. However, the reservoir capacity obtained from the mass curve was 125x106m3. This is lower than the yield value and if used for the dam design, there will be a danger of the reservoir capacity not being able to meet the expected demand. Further analysis was done using the Loucks Sequent Peak Procedure. The value from this procedure was 3.30x109m3. This capacity is safe and reliable and will ultimately meet the water demand of the people in the coverage area.

  Climate change and global warming are now scientifically established facts. Climate change is a massive threat to human development and in some places, it is already undermining the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the international community’s efforts to reduce extreme poverty. The issue of climate change is global. Nigeria is not excluded from its threats. Nigeria is reported to have 123 flaring sites in the Niger Delta region of the country. Making Nigeria one of the highest emitter of greenhouses in Africa. Carbon dioxide emission in the area are among the highest in the world. Some 45.8 billion kilowatts of heat are discharged into the atmosphere of the Niger Delta from flaring 1.8 billion cubic feet of gas everyday. It has been reported that gas flaring has raised temperatures of the region and rendered many areas uninhabitable. This study examines the scenarios of the climate change in the Niger Delta region, its vulnerability and impacts and provided possible mitigations to stem the tide of global warming and environmental degradations in the region.
