ELM CREEK (TAYLOR COUNTY)
ELM CREEK (Taylor County). Elm Creek rises in southeastern Taylor County (at 32°08' N, 99°51' W) and runs south for about twenty-seven miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, at Ballinger in central Runnels County (at 31°44' N, 99°56' W). The stream traverses flat to gently sloping terrain surfaced with moderately deep to shallow silt loams that support mesquite and grasses. The stream is dammed about a mile north of Ballinger to form an irrigation reservoir.
