COTTONWOOD CREEK (FORT BEND COUNTY)

COTTONWOOD CREEK (Fort Bend County). Cottonwood Creek rises in the Orchard Dome oil and gas field, 1½ miles southeast of Orchard in western Fort Bend County (at 29°34' N, 95°56' W), and runs southeast for nine miles to its mouth, where it merges with Coon Creek to form Big Creek (at 29°29' N, 95°50' W). The creek traverses variable terrain surfaced by impermeable soil that changes to calcareous clay and supports mixed hardwoods and prairie grasses.
