The second Sluggish River Drainage Board was incorporated by Order In Council on the 19th September 1912, splitting it from the Oroua Drainage Board. The Board continued to operate after the creation of the Manawatu Catchment Board in 1943, providing a close link to the farmers in the area and carrying out improvements to the river schemes initiated by the Catchment Board. In 1989 the Board amalgamated with many other authorities to form the new Regional Council.
