COTTONWOOD CREEK (Erath County). Cottonwood Creek rises near Dublin in southwestern Erath County (at 32°05' N, 98°20' W) and runs east eight miles to its mouth on Green Creek, one mile northwest of Alexander (at 32°04' N, 98°13' W). The creek is dammed in its upper reaches. It flows first through flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine sandy loam soils that support brush and grasses. Toward the creek's mouth the terrain changes to steep slopes and benches surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
