History of Site and Related Water Issues
Marikina River is a river in eastern Metro Manila, Philippines. It is a tributary of Pasig River with headwaters located in the Sierra Madre Mountains in Rodriguez, Rizal province. Marikina River used to be an important transport route during the Spanish colonial era, but its importance as a transport route diminished when the Philippines national highway system became more established. The resulting lack of river boat traffic and the deforestation of the upland areas in what is now the Upper Marikina River Basin Protected Landscape contributed to the rivers siltation, further reducing its value as a transport route. Due to negligence and industrial development, the river has become very polluted, an act which recent Marikina City administrations have attempted to address.
SECTION I. ILOG by Rico Blanco ft. Kitchie Nadal Ilog is a song that compares the life of a man to the river. It flows and go on up to the downstream and to a bigger body of water. A life of a man flows and passes different phases. Our lives may run smoothly, or we may encounter challenges at times, but we still look forward to reach our goals at the end of the path.
