TWIN CREEK. Twin Creek was inundated by Cedar Creek Reservoir in 1965. It rose at the juncture of North and South Twin creeks in northwest Henderson County (at 32°19' N, 96°06' W) and ran southwest for five miles into Cedar Creek (at 32°15' N, 96°07' W). The area surrounding the reservoir is rolling prairie surfaced by clay loam that supports mesquite, grasses, and occasional mixed hardwood and pine forests and flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
