SPRING CREEK (Anderson County). Spring Creek rises three miles northeast of Tennessee Colony in northwestern Anderson County (at 31°52' N, 95°48' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, runs southwest for 8½ miles, through northwestern Anderson County, to its mouth on Cedar Lake Slough, within the boundaries of Coffield State Prison Farm (at 31°46' N, 95°54' W). The banks of the stream are heavily wooded in places with oak, hickory, gum, and pine trees, and the nearly level to strongly sloping terrain is surfaced by clayey and loamy upland soils. The land is used predominantly for agriculture. The stream has been dammed in its lower reaches to form Coleman Lake and a second, unnamed lake.
