History of Malolos City, Bulacan, Philippines
- article below is copied verbatim from:www.bulacan.gov.ph/malolos
No other towns in the Philippines can be linked to the great patriots and heroes in the country's history more than Malolos—capital of the short-lived Philippine Republic. Such name as General Emilio Aguinaldo, Pedro A. Paterno, Dr. Jose P. Rizal and the del Pilars- Marcelo, Pio, and Gregorio, Apolinario Mabini, Antonio Luna, Felipe Calderon, and a host of others are forever engraved in the annals of Philippine History.
The name of Malolos was presumably derived from the Tagalog word "Paluslos", meaning " downwards". The name resulted from a misunderstanding among the first Spanish missionaries who reached the place. Searching for inhabited places along the Calumpit River, these priests came upon some natives of a riverside barrio (now Kanalate). They asked for the name of the place. The natives, not knowing the Spanish tongue, answered that the flow of the river in that part was downstream -"paluslos"-, which the Spaniards pronounced "Malolos". Corruption of the word through the years led to present "Malolos".
The town originated from a small settlement started by the Spanish missionaries. Later, after clearing forests and virgin lands, the settlement grew, and the population increased. After the construction of a big church, the place was made into a town. From the very beginning, Tagalog made up the majority of the Malolos populace. They were led by prominent families, among them the Gatsalians (Gatchalian), and the Manahans.
To cite all the historical events that transpired in Malolos, one could very well fill a good-sized book. The major events especially those that revolved around the first Republic, cannot be left unmentioned.
The wealth of Malolos lies not only in its more than four thousand hectares of fertile rice lands and more than two thousand hectares of fishponds, but in the character of its people as well. Its people have long been known for their diligence and ingenuity. In early days, farming and fishing took up most of the poultry, farming, pigeon rising, carpentry and woodwork, and other profitable cottage industries and handicrafts. A major factor in Malolos growth and development was the opening of the Manila-Dagupan railways in 1892. With the advent of the railroad came new ideas from Manila and other places. Another factor is Malolos proximity to industrial and business centers. Only 42 kilometers off from Manila, the town and its people are inevitable subjected to an influx of metropolitan thoughts.
In work methods and tools, it is estranged to find Malolos folk using a combination of the old and the new Ramshackle hops tremble to the whirl of modern electric-powered machines. Fishermen go out to the sea in the same dugouts their grandfathers used. Some of them have outboard motors. And handicraftsmen, woodworkers and weavers still follow the ageless techniques of their forefathers.

Natural Resources of Malolos City, Bulacan, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.

116 villages flooded in Bulacan; Malolos hardest hit
By: Emil G. Gamos, Philippine News Agency
August 7, 2012 8:47 PM InterAksyon.com The online news portal of TV5
MALOLOS CITY, Bulacan --Intensive rainfall that pounded many parts of Bulacan inundated at least 116 villages in 12 towns and 3 cities, the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) on Tuesday night.
The hardest hit was the capital city of Malolos, where 29 villages were submerged under one to four feet of raging floodwaters, turning many roads into virtual rivers.
This is the first time that Malolos City was hit by this kind of flooding. The rains were indeed so intense that brought so much waters, said PDRRMC chairman Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado, who personally supervised operations at the PDRRMC command center at the provincial capitol here, together with Vice Gov. Daniel Fernando.
Trucks carrying rescue teams and relief goods were dispatched to heavily flooded areas.
He said emergency response teams were on 24 hours alert, ready to respond at any given time.
Raging floodwaters submerged 16 villages in Calumpit (one to two feet), 11 villages in Obando (one to six feet), eight in Marilao (one to six feet), seven in Guiguinto (one to two feet), six each in Balagtas, Baliwag, Bocaue (one to two feet), five each in Pulilan and Bulakan (one to two feet), four in Plaridel (one to two feet), thre in Meycauayan City (one to four feet), two in San Jose del Monte City (two feet) and one in Sta. Maria (one foot).
As a result, the governor maintained suspension of classes at all levels in the province on Wednesday, Aug 8.
He, however, pointed out that all government institutions related to health, relief and rescue operations are required to report in these crucial times.
Alvarado also disclosed that Ipo dam had began reducing the volume of excess waters towards Bustos dam — from 856 cubic meters per second at 11 a.m. to 300 cms at 2 p.m. to 250 at 4 p.m.
The gradual release will help the Bustos dam to stabilize its water holding capacity.
As of 12 noon Tuesday, the water elevation at Angat dam was 204.3 meters, still below its spilling level of 210 meters.
The water elevation at Ipo dam as of 12 noon was 101.81 meters, breaching its spilling level of 100.50 meters by 1.31 meters.
Senate bets promise to prioritize rehabilitation of water resources
By Dino Balabo (The Philippine Star)
Updated April 18, 2010 12:00 AM
MALOLOS CITY, Bulacan , Philippines – Senatorial candidates from the the Liberal Party (LP) and the Nacionalista Party (NP) yesterday promised to support the rehabilitation of water resources and infrastructure in the country.
LP senatorial candidate Dr. Martin Bautista said reforestation is the most effective way to retain water supply.
He also proposed a total ban on logging, establishment of seedling banks, compulsory tree planting for Filipinos aged 12 to 65, and dredging of waterways.
NP senatorial candidate Susan Ople, who comes from the coastal town of Hagonoy in Bulacan, said the country’s water resources should be rehabilitated to suit the changing climate because a slight rise in sea water levels can displace settlers of coastal towns and destroy their livelihood.
Neric Acosta, also from LP, said water supply is the foundation of economic development.
“Water is life itself. Without it, there would be no society,” he said.
Local candidates in the province also urged the protection of the Angat watershed, which is threatened by illegal logging.
The Angat Dam supplies 97 percent of Metro Manila’s water requirement.
Gubernatorial candidate Willy Alvarado said fishpond operators lose their fish stocks due to heavy runoff during typhoon season.
Edwin Santos, who is running for mayor of Obando, proposed the creation of a coastal road to link Obando to Navotas because 25 percent of the town becomes flooded during high tide and heavy rainfall.
“How can you develop a town like Obando when all dry land goes underwater?” he said.
Environmental group Greenpeace earlier stressed the need to upgrade water infrastructure to suit extreme weather events like the heavy flooding in the metropolis brought by tropical storm “Ondoy” in September last year, and the ongoing El Niño phenomenon.
Greenpeace called for the implementation of the Rainwater Harvesting law that was enacted in 1989.
The law mandates the Department of Public Works and Highways to construct rainwater collectors in every barangay.
