Near that confluence is a series of large fissure springs occurring along the fault zone. The topography of the drainage area varies from rolling to hill, with the area under concern in this report being undeveloped and covered with brush (Corp of Engineers, US Army, 1972).

The elevation of a point on a concrete slab in the middle of the trench was established, using a Texas Highway Department Bench Mark ...
