DOMAIN BYLAWS TO BE CHANGED AS AT MARCH 2015 WILL THIS SLOWLY TAKE THE OWNERS RIGHTS AWAY UNDER SECTION 18 OF THE ROLD ACT 1956? & as the below Amendments say in red could allow DOC to control our rights


The lakebed, dewatered zone, islands and the Hokio Stream are owned by beneficial members of the Muaupoko tribe 1511 of them constitute in 81 shares, as determined by the Reserves and other Lands Disposal Act (ROLD) 1956. The lake waters Muaupoko Domain, dewatered zone and one chain reserve strip in front of the Muaupoko Domain are vested under the Reserves Act 1977 in the Horowhenua Lake Domain Board. To date they have achieved nothing and even today sewerage is released into the Horowhenua Lake by the Council when it is overloaded? The Horowhenua Lake has sediments on the bottom so pronounced with toxins that the Council and Horizons have neglected in their responsibilities over many years to clean it up as its in the hard basket. Algael blooms form which are caused by super dangerous cyanobacteria and are everywhere and weeds choke the Lake-- you cannot swim in this Lake let alone walk in it as one of our Kaumatua nearly drowned near the Weir by the outlet to Hokio Stream due to the sludge that has piled up in this Lake. Horowhenua Lake was once a prestine Lake and needs to be brought back to its former beauty to benefit all not just us Maori owners.




AS AT DECEMBER 2019 THE LAKE REMAINS THE SAME so see what a waste of a resource for the people of Levin as well as for the Maori who are missing out on a treasure that could be out to good use for all.

THE HOROWHENUA DOMAIN BOARD MEMBERS DO NOT KNOW HOW TO VOTE ON MORE TRUSTEES YET THIS HAS BEEN IN THE PROCESS FOR A FEW YEARS NOW--ACTUALLY SINCE 2014 HOWS THAT. So what does that tell you. Who is pilferring the till and why can't even the Iwi reps look at naming nominees when it is quite easy to do.

The Lake is a dead duck & the worst situation of any tribe in NZ



The 3 words come to mind again: transparency, integrity & honesty.

STILL NO 4TH IWI REP ON THE LAKE DOMAIN BOARD. ITS NOW OVER 1 YEAR and this defunct Domain Board has achieved little. Now they hold 4 monthly meetings & really is illegal as this Board was setup to have 4 Muaupoko Iwi Reps


As at December 2014 there is still no full compliment of 4 Iwi reps on the Domain Board. They have been told its a simple process but they still do nothing. I wonder why? The minister Nick Smith also does not intervene so the Maori owners have 3 reps on this Board . In October 2014 the question again was asked why no 4th Iwi rep??

Lester whose the Chairman has done nothing & Lester by the way wasn't even aware of the sewer pipe rupture when he was told by Tama Ruru that Higgins fractured the sewer line withn an excavator and the raw sewerage went back into the Arawhata stream into Lake Horowhenua?

Amazing as even the press never knew but some of us owners know what happened. Now we have the Board wanting to change the By laws but read below



Lake Horowhenua March 2015. So what does this Lake remind you of & Council polluted it?? with sewerage


These amendments may have no bearing on Section 18 of the ROLD Act for us owners as not noted in the beginning and also allows DOC to control our Lake & any Domain Board member at will. Our people need to wake up and the community to see why our Lakew will never have the sludge removed when we have dopey Board members who have no interest yet pretend cause theres money in it for them????for some esp the Iwi reps who are totally useless.
