Physical and Environmental Attributes
Land Area: The land area of Lucena is 8,316.90 hectares. About 2% of the total land area of Lucena belongs to the 11 urban barangays or poblacion. More than half of the total land area is devoted to agriculture. The City has grown rapidly into a major urban community in the centre of an agricultural economy. A vast portion of the once flourishing coconut plantation is now converted into residential subdivisions. Political Subdivision: Lucena City is composed of 33 barangays, 11 of which are classified as urban; 6 as sub-urban, 11 as rural and 5 as coastal barangays. Topography: Lucena is situated on a flat terrain with slightly rolling hills. The greatest part of the land has a slope of 0 to 3%. Slope of 10 to 20% comprise only a little portion of the land. Nine rivers and six creeks serve as natural drainage for the city. The City is wedged between two big rivers, the Dumacaa River in the eastern part, which abounds with boulders, and Iyam River in the west which has an abundant deposit of gravel and sand. There are few marshes along the seacoast, because most of them have been converted into fishponds.
