Geography of Houston, TXMain article: of Houston A simulated-color image of Houston According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 601.7 square miles ; this comprises 579.4 square miles of land and 22.3 square miles of water. Most of Houston is located on the gulf coastal plain , and its vegetation is classified as temperate grassland and forest. Much of the city was built on forested land, marshes, swamp, or prairie , which are all still visible in surrounding areas. Flatness of the local terrain, when combined with urban sprawl , has made flooding a recurring problem for the city. Downtown stands about 50 feet above sea level, and the highest point in far northwest Houston is about 125 feet in elevation. The city once relied on groundwater for its needs, but land subsidence forced the city to turn to ground-level water sources such as Lake Houston , Lake Conroe and Lake Livingston . The city owns surface water rights for 1.2 billion gallons of water a day in addition to 150 million gallons a day worth of groundwater. Houston has four major bayous passing through the city. Buffalo Bayou runs through downtown and the Houston Ship Channel , and has three tributaries: White Oak Bayou , which runs through the Houston Heights community northwest of Downtown and then towards Downtown; Braes Bayou, which runs along the Texas Medical Center; and Sims Bayou, which runs through the south of Houston and downtown Houston. The ship channel continues past Galveston and then into the Gulf of Mexico . Geology Underpinning Houston's land surface are unconsolidated clays, clay shales, and poorly cemented sands up to several miles deep. The region's geology developed from river deposits formed from the erosion of the Rocky Mountains . These sediments consist of a series of sands and clays deposited on decaying organic marine matter, that over time, transformed into oil and natural gas. Beneath the layers of sediment is a water-deposited layer of halite , a rock salt. The porous layers were compressed over time .
