The station is in midsections of the Juba River. It is approximately 2 days lag from Luuq but could be slightly longer during flood events. The river valley is well defined between Luuq and Bardheere and thus loses little in between except during high flows. Several tributaries flow into the reach; these are normally dry but can contribute to substantial amounts of flow during the rainy seasons.
The station was re-established in September 2001 and daily water level readings are recorded by SWALIM up to date. A few attempts were made to carry out river flow measurements at the station but this was not sustainable due to security reasons. Therefore, the river level readings are converted to flow using historical ratings that were generated between 1963 and 1990. The new (2001 to date) flow values have been examined and are considered to be accurate.
SWALIM in collaboration with the authorities are making efforts to carry out flow measurements from this station as soon as the logistics on the ground allow.
