Storm Water Plan for Manawatu

July 10, 2018

Manawatū District Council has signed off on its Long Term Plan, and a big ticket item is

building new storm water networks, worth $5.6 million, in Cheltenham, Tangimoana, Himatangi

Beach and Halcombe.


Impassioned pleas from village residents forced the council to undertake a district-wide storm water review last year after flooding was becoming increasingly worse as blocked drains and idle ditches put residents' homes in danger.


The plan also involves improvements to the existing networks in Feilding, Sanson and Rongotea.


Halcombe's drains were never categorised as a storm water system and, therefore, suffered from a lack of maintenance.
