FLAT CREEK (CASS COUNTY)
FLAT CREEK (Cass County). Flat Creek rises in the Cusseta Mountains four miles east of Marietta in northwestern Cass County (at 33°11' N, 94°29' W) and runs south for nineteen miles to its mouth on Black Cypress Creek, six miles southwest of Linden (at 32°58' N, 94°29' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper and middle reaches, runs first through a hilly area, then through terrain that is gently undulating to gently rolling and surfaced by fine sandy loam. The area is flood-prone, and native vegetation includes water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
