Kaeo River

The Kaeo River begins north of Waipapa and flows north into the Whangaroa Harbour. Approximately half of the catchment is native forest and scrub, with the remainder in pine forestry or pastoral farming. The Waiare and Waionepu streams and Mangaiti Creek are the main contributing streams to the Kaeo River. There are two flow recorder sites located in the catchment. One site is located below the township of Kaeo, just before the influence of salt water.

The Kaeo catchment is highly erodible, which is reflected in its high turbidity levels. Bacteria levels are elevated and are a result of farm rainfall-runoff, and livestock access to waterways.
