Horowhenua District Council is responsible for stormwater in our towns, settlements, and along most roadways. Most rural drainage schemes are owned and managed by Horizons Regional Council.

The piped stormwater network in Horowhenua is just over 96 kilometres in length and includes 17 pump stations. More than half of the network (59km) is in Levin where about two thirds of our residents live, in Foxton the network is just over 15km length and in Foxton Beach the network is just under 12km. Smaller stormwater systems are found in Hōkio Beach, Manakau, Mangaore, Ōhau, Shannon, Tokomaru, Waitārere Beach and Waikawa Beach. To view the network in each location please visit our Online Maps.

In this section you can find out about our stormwater services for residents and how we manage stormwater on our roading network. You will also find information about how you can play your part in keeping our waterways clean, and we preview some upcoming changes and challenges to stormwater requirements.
