MOUND CREEK (FORT BEND COUNTY)
MOUND CREEK (Fort Bend County). Mound Creek rises in southern Fort Bend County just south of the community of Guy (at 29°22' N, 95°48' W) and flows in a southeasterly direction for about ten miles to its mouth (at 29°08' N, 95°43' W) on the San Bernard River in western Brazoria County, some 1½ miles west of West Columbia. It runs past Damon Mound and the Damon Mound Oilfield. The vegetation along the stream consists of mixed hardwoods interspersed with a variety of prairie grasses. Area terrain ranges from variable to flat with local shallow depressions. The land is surfaced by impermeable soil and local expansive clays.
