Slein is on a distinguished road

I'm trying to solve a self-made case for the uniform flow around a cylinder. My boundary conditions are the following:

left: one face of 3m with inlet with second face of 1m atmosphere
right: same as left but then outlet
bottom: no-slip wall
sides: slip wall
cylinder: no-slip wall
top: atmosphere

But when solving a strange thing happens at the outlet. I use an inlet velocity of 1m/s but the water height seems to be decreasing in the end (see figure).

What can be the cause of this?
