This big percentage of the faithful believers and flowers of the Universal Church is momentously the studying manifestation of the Apostolic Zeal of lay brethren and devoted adherences.
- article from: www.pangasinan.gov.ph
To begin writing the history of Umingan is to recall the "vibrating voice" of a beautiful maiden which was heard about three centuries ago. It resounded, "Omega". This was the beginning of how Umingan got its name. "Omega" is a Greek word signifying the "end" or the "last". Geographically, the municipality is situated in the eastern "end" of the province. And so, its name reflects its geographical location.
But the story of the yearly journey of traders from the central towns of the province, gave more significant account on how Umingan was named. It had been said that before Martin de Goiti and Juan de Salcedo undertook their northward expeditions in 1571-1572, people from the "Kingdom of Luyag na Caboloan" came to the eastern regions to barter their products. This trade between the central towns and eastern communities of the province continued even after the Malong Rebellion in 1662.
People from Binalatongan, now San Carlos, Calasiao, Mangaldan and Manaoag traded their goods in big quantities with the people of east Pangasinan. The historical account stated that whenever the traders reached the small rivulet, the streamlet that still flows to this day, crossing the town south of the present public market, they always stopped to "end" their long journey at the point.
The first business caravans during their encampment, saw a beautiful woman bathing in the tiny river. They asked her the name of the rivulet. She replied in "resounding rustic voice" that the stream was "Umingan." From that time on, the people had been calling the place by that term. When the community was organized into a municipality, after it was separated from the town of Lupao, Nueve Ecija, it was named "Umingan."

Natural Resources of Umingan, Pangasinan, 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.
