Segment Description

Segment 0604B - Hurricane Creek (unclassified water body). Covering an area of four miles, this water body stretches from the confluence of Cedar Creek south of Lufkin to the upstream perennial portion of the stream in Lufkin in Angelina County. General and recreation use are designated uses for this segment. This segment is on the 303(d) list for impaired bodies of water. It was first listed in the year 2000 for nonsupport of contact recreational use due to elevated bacterial levels. It is currently under a 5c categorization. There is a partial impairment listing for lead as a chronic toxic substance and concern for screening for ammonia. This small stream is very shallow and has large quantities of non-point source pollution. Monitoring Station 13529 is located upstream of the City of Lufkin WWTP outfall.
