This paper expresses the rate of permeability flow monitored at various locations in deltaic environment of Yenagoa. The depositions of permeability were to determine the rate of Phreatic deposition including yield rate in the study location. Monitoring permeability in heterogeneous fine sand formation in Phreatic bed has not been thorough carried out in deltaic formations, the negligence of yield rate prediction has been generating design failure in ground water and well design, monitoring and evaluation of ground water flow system has not been thorough determined, these has developed lots of abortive wells due to negligence in water well construction, base on these conditions, modeling approach to predict the variation depositions of permeability were found imperative, the derived model generated predictive values, these were simulated to produce theoretical values validated with experimental data, both parameters developed faviourably fits, experts in ground water engineering will found the model useful in their design and construction of water wells.
