Saliducon comes from the root word ‘’ saliduk’’ which means “water pipe.” Thus “saliducon” would literally mean a pipeline, water path or place where water flows through. Saliducon is rich in natural resources. Namely, sallep which is where the fresh water comes from to supply thousands of people in some areas of Sta Cruz Davao Del Sur. The Barangay is surrounded by a vast forest and green trees. Unfortunately, some Brgy. officials are active but most are not.
Kudos to the Brgy. Captain Peter Renon Sumbilon, and the two Brgy. Councilors namely Erwin & Tony Eting and one citizen who fixed the water system.
The waters of Saliducon River are as clear as crystal. It is a living witness of my childhood. During weekends, lolo and lola permitted us to play and plunge into the river we usually call it “Linaw” means deep kind of crystal. Saliducon river is the body of sallep. There’s a part of the river where we jumped from the top of the boulder down to the running spring. I guess, it’s 10 or 11 feet above the water. Oh how I miss my childhood, when every enjoyable thing was all wild and free!
