BRUSHY CREEK (Lavaca County). Brushy Creek rises three miles northeast of Hallettsville in north central Lavaca County (at 29°29' N, 96°54' W) and flows southeast for eleven miles to its mouth on the Navidad River, 2½ miles south of Sublime (at 29°'25 N, 96°'48 W). It crosses gently rolling terrain with a clay loam surface over a dense clay subsoil. Brushy Creek is prone to flood, but the runoff is rapid. Areas surrounding the stream are mixed open and forested and are used primarily as range and pasture land, with some production of corn and grain sorghum. Wildlife is abundant in the wooded areas, where a mixture of oak, sycamore, pecan, yaupon, and wild grape provide wildlife habitat.
