My mapping assignment ends as the Meramec River passes near the town of Steelville. The other three tributaries of the Meramec River are past this point, the closest being the Courtois-Huzzah. After the Courtois and Huzzah Creeks join and empty into the Meramec River, the Borbeuse River is the next tributary. This river has a high proportion of silt due to the soft sandstone that lies under much of the river channel, which gives the lower Meramec its cloudy appearance. The last tributary of the Meramec, before it empties into the Mississippi River, is the Big River.

Of historical interest, It is said that the Trail of Tears passed through Steelville where they stopped near the spring to rest, bury their dead, and resupply.
