LITTLE BRUSHY CREEK. Little Brushy Creek rises two miles from Yoakum in DeWitt County (at 29°17' N, 97°13' W) and runs southeast for thirty-two miles to its mouth on Chicolete Creek in southwestern Lavaca County (at 29°07' N, 96°57' W) two miles northeast of the point where the DeWitt, Victoria, and Lavaca county lines converge. The local terrain is flat to rolling and is surfaced by highly permeable soil that supports mixed hardwoods and pines.
