MOUND CREEK (Montgomery County). Mound Creek rises near the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway northwest of Keenan in western Montgomery County (at 30°21' N, 95°41' W) and runs southeast for eleven miles to its mouth on Lake Creek, near the Lake Creek oilfield (at 30°15' N, 95°34' W). The creek flows through flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
