BIG EDDY. Big Eddy rises a half mile south of San Jacinto Dam on Lake Houston in northeast Harris County (at 95°07' N, 29°54' W) and flows southeast for 1½ miles to its juncture with the San Jacinto River (at 95°07' N, 29°53' W). The stream is located in the eastern part of Dwight D. Eisenhower Park. It traverses flat swampland where pines and hardwoods grow.
