SNAKE CREEK (Waller County). Snake Creek rises in the Katy oil and gas field five miles east of Brookshire in southeastern Waller County (at 29°49' N, 95°53' W), where it has been altered to accommodate industrial development north of Interstate Highway 10. The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It runs southeast for five miles to its mouth on the Willow Fork of Buffalo Bayou, south of I10 a mile southwest of Katy in Fort Bend County (at 29°47' N, 95°50' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports mixed hardwoods and pines and agricultural products.
