“biggest river in agusan”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

this river was used in transporting logs in the early days. The river connects davao, cotabato and agusan basin. This is also use as the fastest way of transportation going to the municipality of magallanes and nearby barangays. The best time to enjoy boat rides is during summer, march-june.

“The second largest river in the country!”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

The second largest river that flows out to the Magallanes delta passing the city of Butuan. In the city it gets the biggest volume of water from the many sources This is sourced out from different tributaries from the mountains and marshes of the Agusan provinces and even from the central area of Mindanao particularly from the highlands of Compostela Valley province.

It is true that Agusan river does not look clear and clean because if it rained in those places in Agusan Sur or from COMVAL province, the water in the river to Butuan City is always a flood water. I have been long time passing this river and to Butuan city since i worked in Davao. Butuan City is where the sea port to the Visayas is situated until the river opening became shallower then the sea port was moved to Nasipit a much safer harbor.

The river gives varied help to the people but when it rained hard or when storm comes hitting over Mindanao the rivers swells and caused flooding to the area mostly to the much lower portions destroying many shanties constructed along the river.
