Hlegu Township (Burmese: လှည်းကူး မြို့နယ်, pronounced [l̥ɛ́ɡú mjo̰nɛ̀]) is a township in Yangon Division, Burma (Myanmar). It is northeast of the city Yangon and is largely rural.

The township's Paunglin Dam and Ngamoeyeik Reservoir supply water to over 28,300 hectares (70,000 acres) of farmland between Hlegu and Yangon, and nearly 340 million liters (90 million gallons) of water a day to the people living in Yangon.[1]

The new Yangon-Naypyidaw Highway cuts through the township.[2]


Hlegu township shares borders with Hmawbi Township and Taikkyi Township in the west, Bago Township of Bago Region in the north and east, North Okkalapa Township, North Dagon Township and East Dagon Township in the south.[3]
