Geography of Lubao, Pampanga, Philippines
- Land Area (as of 2007, in hectares) = 15,577
Lubao’s terrain is generally flat. Its elevation is between 0-3 meters only. Broad plains constitute about 64.30% of the total land area. It is traversed by two major rivers: the Gumain and the Kaulaman Rivers, and numerous small creeks serving as drainage basin. The southern portion of Lubao is part of the coastal area of the Pampanga province. The specific zone serves as the fishing ground of the municipality. Its slope is higher on the northern-western part with an elevation of 11 meters. The slope then shifts to an elevation of 8 meters on the western side. On the southern portion, elevation becomes deeper, ranging from 3 to 0 meters up to the location of the three island barangays along the coast of Pampanga Bay. (article verbatim from www.lubao.gov.ph/)

Location of Lubao, Pampanga, Philippines
Lubao is one of the twenty two municipalities of the Province of Pampanga. It is located at the western part of the province. It is bounded by the municipalities of Guagua on the north, Sasmuan on the east, Floridablanca on the west and Orani, Bataan on the south. It is about 14o 56’ 07” latitude, and 120o 36’ 04” longtitude.
As most cradles of world civilizations took place along riverbanks, Lubao’s strategic location dictates the pattern of how the earliest Kapampangans established their own. Its proximity to the Western Luzon mountain ranges, where the Philippine aborigines (Aytas) were believed to have first settled magnifies the historical process of how ancient movements or migration of people had evolved. Strategically nestled along flat greenfields and prosperous estuarines, Lubao’s location is advantageous and important for agriculture and trade. Historically, Lubao was a vast kingdom that comprised all its surrounding villages or settlements. It included the Bataan towns of San Juan de Dinalupihan, Llana Hermosa, Orani, Samal, Abucay, Balanga, and Orion); some portions of Zambales; and the town of Floridablanca, and according to oral traditions, Sasmuan, Guagua and Betis were also ancient confederated villages of Lubao until they were declared independent pueblos (towns) by the Spanish missionaries. (article verbatim from www.lubao.gov.ph/)
History of Lubao, Pampanga, Philippines
- The Name of Lubao.
BABA and LUBAO are popular names used by the early Kapangpangan (or Kapampangan) settlers to describe the physical nature of the place. Geographically, the names point toward the extreme low topology of the town. Hence, throughout the history of Lubao, the popular word “low” became synonymous or associated to the meaning of the town. Historically, the etymologies of the names, BABA and LUBAO, are significant in the cosmological evolution and epochal development of the town as the Cradle of the Kapampangan Kingdom that later influenced the configuration of the Kapampangan Empire.
Brimming with history and cultural heritage, Lubao is not only the oldest of all Kapampangan towns but is aptly called the Cradle of the Kapampangan Civilization (Duyan Ning Kamalayang Kapampangan). As the portal of a great civilization during its time, Lubao is colored with rich historical landscapes and cultural vestiges.
Lubao is blessed by God with many unique features such as its fertile greenfields that abound with abundant forest mangroves which teem with variety of aquatic sanctuaries; enormous brackish fishponds that breed prawns and milkfish; rich swamplands that house sanctuaries for birds and inland ponds; criss-crossing estuaries and tributaries that nestle estuarine flora and fauna; a regrowing business center of trade, commerce, and industry; a host for the religious, entrepreneurs, artisans, artists, overseas contract workers, farmers, and fishermen; the home of simple, bold, spiritual, and God-fearing citizens; and foremost, the hometown of humble and pious Excellencies: Diosdado Pangan Macapagal and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, presidents of the Republic of the Philippines.
Lubao as the Cradle of Kapampangan Civilization brims with antiquity through its timeless monuments: Catholicism, devout people, and good government. (article verbatim from www.lubao.gov.ph/)
People of Lubao, Pampanga, Philippines
- Population (as of Aug 1, 2007) = 143,058
- Registered Voters 1 (2010) = 77,388
- Early People of Lubao.
Lubao’s earliest political leaders were believed to come from the ancient roots of Rajah Soliman. Rajah Matanda, the father of Rajah Soliman of Maynilad (Manila), and Rajah Lacandula of Tunduk (Tondo) were, likewise, believed to be descendants of the courageous and powerful Soliman’s clans of Lubao. The succeeding leaders of Lubao included Datu Macabulus, the last chieftain of the Kingdom of Lubao when the Spanish conquistadores arrived in the village to subjugate the people. Later, the clans of the Soliman and Macabulus produced a valiant leader named Francisco Soliman Macabulus, the patriotic hero of Tarlac. Spanish accounts also identified Don Nicolas Ramos, chief and governor of Lubao, and Don Juan Lising, also a chieftain of Lubao as early leaders of the town. Similar documents also mentioned the role of Don Juan Macapagal, the chieftain of Arayat, in persuading the Kapampangan revolutionaries in Lubao to halt their uprising against the Spaniards in 1660. The present Macapagals of Lubao are descendants of this clan. (article verbatim from www.lubao.gov.ph/)

Natural Resources of Lubao, Pampanga, 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.
