SOUTH BOSQUE RIVER. The South Bosque River rises in the Naval Industries Reserve Ordnance Plant south of McGregor in southwestern McLennan County near the Coryell-McLennan county line (at 31°23' N, 97°28' W) and flows northeast for sixteen miles into Lake Waco, near U.S. Highway 84 at the southwestern edge of Waco near McGregor Municipal Airport in central McLennan County (at 31°34' N, 97°12' W). The river flows through variable terrain surfaced by shallow stony clay loam that supports juniper, oak, grasses, chaparral, and cacti.
