It has five (5) major rivers that flow to Panguil Bay, namely: Maranding, Panoloon, Butadon, Kidalos, and Balili. These rivers sometimes, especially during the rainy season, overflow causing floods resulting to destruction and even death of farm and land animals.
The Cathedral Falls, Spring, and Sta. Cruz waterfalls are located at barangays Cathedral Falls, Sta. Cruz, and Waterfalls respectively. At present, the spring supplies water into Poblacion and some neighboring barangays.
