Activities and rainfall events at Kibalagon Creek catchment basin contribute to flooding problems at CMU. The study characterized the physical characteristics of the basin to serve as input in policy formulation of campus flooding problems. One year data collection included profile leveling, water flow measurements, soil and water sampling, and rainfall data collection. The basin is 464.3 hectares with 9.91-kilometer perimeter and thematic maps on a slope, elevation and soil were made. Kibalagon Creek has a total length of 8.61 kilometers with 12 streams and drainage density of 18.55 m/ha. Total suspended solid did not meet the minimum for agricultural purpose while pH and Total dissolved solid qualified.
