Agua Grande

Agua Grande is known for its eco-friendly and non-carbon producing mini-hydropower plant. The Agua-Grande River was introduced in 1983 and supplied Pagudpud, Bangui, Dumalneg, Adams, and Burgos with sustainable and alternative electricity. 

Additionally, Agua-Grande and Mabogabog provided water for turning turbines. A report on the hydro plant was commissioned by the Ilocos Norte Electric Cooperative. The power stations, installed over the years in Pagudpud and nearby to the villages of Pasuquin and Bacarra, have an electricity generating capacity of 4.5 megawatt. 

Agua Grande has a swimming pool full of the freshwater of a mountain spring, which is surrounded by cottages, bordered by the vast blue waters. Nearby the attraction is a cross graved on the tree, the legendary Paraido ni Anton, and many more.
