History of Meycauayan City, Bulacan, Philippines
- article below is from: www.bulacan.gov.ph/meycauayan verbatim
Meycauayan is one of the oldest towns in the province of Bulacan and in the entire Philippines. The Franciscans established the town in 1578, a few years after the founding of the city of Manila. According to historical notes, the first missionaries to come to this town were Fathers Juan de Placencia and Diego de Oropesa. The "poblacion" was first established in Malhacan, earthquake, and the church including big houses collapsed. Because of this, the town proper was transferred to Lagulo. But Lagulo also did not last long as the town's poblacion. Aetas oftentimes visited the place; hence, the church was transferred in place full of bamboos (makawayan). From this place, the town's name derived. If not for this incident, the town would have been known as Malhacan or Lagulo. The transfer was made by Father Pedro Bautista, the priest who was held martyr in the country of Japan and was canonized into sainthood by the Papal seat in Rome.
Also, according to history, the town of Meycauayan, being a big place and the oldest in this part of Bulacan was alluded to as the prime town of the province of the same name. It was also proven by the book "Estado dela Provincia" printed in 1865 and written by Gregorio Magno, who described the town and its neighboring places as forested and wild, the people trekked to the vast expanse of the field and lands.
It was also during those times that Meycauayan was the center because besides its market, the headquarters of the Spaniards was established here. The then Meycauayan was composed of Polo and Obando, Marilao, Bocaue and San Jose del Monte. Corresponding to the changes of the primary towns, the name of the province was also changed from Meycauayan to Bulacan.
The neighboring town of Bocaue was founded in the year 1582, four or five years after the establishment of the town Meycauayan. It could also be gleaned from historical transitions before the Spaniards came, that the town of Meycauayan was progressive place, abundant and considered as a city.
It was in the year of 1623 when the town of Polo was detached from Meycauayan and followed by other towns, which now independently exist. (Polo was incorporated to the town of Valenzuela now a pat of Metro Manila). The last town to become independent from the town of Meycauayan was Marilao in 1913.
Because of the continuous progress of the town, a concrete bridge was built in 1791, which up to now exist as a historical document in Meycauayan's legacy.
RA 9021 converted the municipality of Meycauayan, province of Bulacan, into a component city. (AM No. 07-6-160-MTCC, re: Conversion of the Municipality of Meycauayan Into a Component City, July 24, 2000).

Natural Resources of Meycauayan 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.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
