Porirua City Coun­cil will spend $50,000 to in­ves­ti­gate a so­lu­tion to the flood­ing is­sues plagu­ing Hon­goeka. The small set­tle­ment of 30 houses and 127 people has been be­set by flood­ing, with de­vel­op­ment above the vil­lage and a creek that over­flows in heavy rain leading to wa­ter-logged streets and homes. In a sub­mis­sion to Porirua City Coun­cil in Fe­bru­ary, Hon­goeka Marae com­mit­tee chair­man Jensen Parata said a big­ger pipe in the creek was re­quired.
