Cedar Creek (Wisconsin)
Cedar Creek is a 32.7-mile-long (52.6 km) stream in southeastern Wisconsin in the United States. It emanates from Big Cedar Lake in the town of West Bend, then flows east into Little Cedar Lake. Eventually the creek flows to the southeast and runs directly through the heart of Cedarburg. The creek empties into the Milwaukee River within the town of Grafton.
The lower portion of the creek, once heavily polluted by industrial outflowage (including the former Mercury Marine boat engine plant), was rejuvenated in the late 1980s and 1990s. Several species of fish are found in the creek, including northern pike, rock bass, smallmouth bass, bluegills, sunfish, carp, suckers and bullheads. Several gristmills and a woolen mill were built along the creek in the mid-19th century, including several in downtown Cedarburg.
