Bryant Creek Tributaries
Dry Creek drains a large area south of Mansfield and Norwood. Rainwater
falling on the Dry Creek watershed runs south from the train tracks that
run between Norwood and Mansfield; west from Highway C; and east from
Macomb is just south of Highway 60 on the northern boundary of the Dry
Creek watershed. Olathia is on Highway U, about a mile north of Bryant
County roads run alongside most of the creek bottom, and on the major
ridges. Highway YY ends at the South Fork of Dry Creek.
Watershed Size: About 50 square miles.
Elevation varies from 1,580 feet above sea level on the railroad between
the two towns to 920 feet where the creek meets the Bryant. Maximum
relief is 660 feet.
Tributaries: Puncheon Camp Creek and South Fork of Dry Creek. Dry Creek
is an intermittent stream. Both tributaries are intermittent.
Much of the flat ground along the railroad is pasture land. The broad
ridges and creek bottoms are also clear. The steeper slopes are forested.
There are sinkholes around Norwood, particularly on the north side.
A cave in the watershed is called "China Pig Hole".
