SOUTH BRUSHY CREEK. South Brushy Creek rises just east of Cedar Park in southwestern Williamson County (at 30°28' N, 97°49' W) and runs northeast for seven miles to its mouth on Brushy Creek, just west of Round Rock (at 30°31' N, 97°45' W). The creek is dammed to form a reservoir 1½ miles from its mouth. It flows through gently sloping terrain that has been extensively developed for commercial and residential purposes.
