MURVAUL BAYOU. Murvaul Bayou (Murvaul Creek) rises four miles east of Minden in eastern Rusk County (at 32°00' N, 94°40' W) and flows northeast for twenty-six miles to its mouth on the Sabine River, two miles northeast of Murvaul (at 32°05' N, 94°13' W). The stream, which is dammed in its upper reaches to form Murvaul Lake, traverses generally flat terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
