AGUA DULCE CREEK

AGUA DULCE CREEK. Agua Dulce Creek, intermittent for all but the last two miles of its roughly forty-five mile length, rises in northwestern Jim Wells County (at 27°59' N, 98°12' W) and runs southeast until it joins Banquete Creek to form Petronila Creek one mile east of Banquete in western Nueces County (at 27°48' N, 97°47' W). Its name is from the land grant given by the Spanish government to Rafael García. The surrounding flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loams and dark clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, grasses, scrub brush, mesquite, and some cacti.
