Region 7 Upper Brazos Flood Planning Region
Originating near Lubbock, the Brazos river’s Salt Fork and Double Mountain Fork track east across the High and Rolling Plains ecoregions of West Texas, converging in Stonewall County. The main stem of the Brazos then merges with the Clear Fork in the Cross Timbers ecoregion of southern Young County before entering Possum Kingdom Lake in the adjacent Region 8 Lower Brazos. There are 14 major lakes and reservoirs in Region 7.
