Technical Lot Description MACRO AND MICRO SITE ANALYSIS A.   Slope and Soil Classification The topography of Bulacan is generally flat on the western side while on the eastern side are uplands that gradually increase in altitude and serve as foothills of the Sierra Madre a major mountain range in the country and the Cordillera. Owing ti its physical feature, the province has three identifiable geographical areas, namely: the coastal areas of Hagonoy, Malolos, Paombong, Obando and Bulacan, the flatlands or central section which is composed of Balagtas, Baliuagm Bocaue, Bustos, Calumpit, Guiguinto, POINT BEARING DISTANCE 1-2  N 75°59’00” E  300.00 m 2-3 S 40°21’00” E  171.00 m 3-4 S 76°08’00” W  353.38 m 4-1  N 22°25’00” W  153.98 m With a total land area of 49, 893 suare meters.  Marilao, Meycauayan, Pandi, Plaridel, Pulilan and Sta.

The size of Bulacan is approximately 14% of the region’s total land area and about 0.88% of the country’s total land area. Bulacan’s soil types vary from the fine sandy loam type, abounding in the southeastern portion to the silt loam type found in the northern part of the province. B.   Climatic Condition Like most provinces of Luzon, the climate in Bulacan consists of two seasons: the wet and the dry. The wet season starts around May and ends towards November. The rest of the year is dry with occasional rains, more or less evenly dispersed throughout the area. The province experiences a cool weather from December to February and hot and humid the rest of the year. This type of climate has proved ideal for the growing of all types of food and plant crops. C.   Water Resources Bulacan province is fortunate for having streams and several large rivers providing water and hydroelectric power. Considered to be major ones are the Ipo and the Angat Rivers which are big enough to provide economic opportunieies to the province. The Angat Dam serves a greater portion of the water supply needs of Metro Manila and Cavite City through the MWSS. In 1988, a Memorandum of Agreement was signed by the MWSS and the province of Bulacan, which includes the towns of Meycauayan and Obando on the MWSS, service area. Fresh water coming from inland rivers diverges into several tributaries before flowing into the Manila Bay. D.   Electric Power The power supply in Dona Remedios Trinidad Bulacan is distributed by Meralco  but some area was unable to reach by the Meralco. Some of the residences uses a solar  panel which the government give it to residences for their power supply.
