The Minjibir-Wase dam was constructed along the drainage system from the Jakara stream and linked with Dambattan flow that channelled through the lowland of the Minjibir via the main tributaries which drained into Hadeja. The idea of the dam was initiated during the Abdu-Bako era for sustainable irrigation Agriculture. More than twenty thousand people are benefiting from the dam. To harness the water resources, a private tourist centre was established along the coastal region of the dam where different recreational facilities were put in place to attract foreign investment and for leisure. The method used is the application of Hydrological software ArcSWAT and ArcGIS to map and evaluate the area morphometric characteristics of the basin parameters examined includes the slope gradient, sub-basin length, width, density, flow accumulation and direction and depth of the Basin.
