Hexiwu (Chinese: t 河西務, s 河西务, Héxīwù), formerly known as Ho-Hsi-Wu, was a port city in China along the [[Grand Canal, China|Grand Canal]]. As Hexiwuzhen (镇), a locality of about 25,000 people, has now been absorbed by the municipality of Tianjin's Wuqing District.
During the Ming dynasty, the bursting of several dikes at Hexiwu touched off a crisis in 1424. Mu Jin and Zhang Xin directed efforts by more than 5,000 workers from the Ministry of Public Works to repair the damage and restore the irrigation system.
