Pangil River

Pangil, Laguna

The Pangil River, also known as the Bambang Hari River, is a river system that runs through Pangil, Laguna in the Philippines. It is one of 21 River tributaries of Laguna de Bay and is regularly monitored by the Laguna Lake Development Authority through one of its 15 river monitoring stations. The Pangil River sub-basin has a drainage area of 51.14 square kilometers.

According to th ...

e Water Usage & Classification for Fresh Water system used by the Philippines' Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Class D Quality freshwater is suitable for agriculture, irrigation, livestock watering and industrial water supply class II. "Worse than Class D" implies that the Pangil River is not suitable for any of those functions.

In 1980, International Rice Research Institute researcher DA Vaughan documented six populations of a wild rice species known to be resistant to bacterial blight, bacterial blast, green planthopper, and brown planthopper - along a stream which is a tributary of the Pangil river.

A 2004 survey noted with alarm that all the populations were gone. The report attributed the disappearance of the rare and useful species of rice to human activities, particularly "livestock raising, farming, and road construction, which destroy the natural vegetation within the vicinity." Scientists have noted that further studies are needed to prevent the local extinction of this species.

    A sales pitch to vacationers stay longer

    A region endowed with natural resources a stone's throw away south of the nation's capital could be Calabarzon's (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon) best draw for foreign and local tourists.

    But a tourism advocate has a different take, saying this could also be a setback for the local tourism industry.

    Since Calabarzon is located close to Manila??"less than an hour travel time to its outskirts via major expressways??"urban dwellers tend to see Calabarzon as a destination only for day trips and quick visits, said Roberto Cereno of the nongovernment Turismo de Los BaƱos.
