AGUA POQUITA CREEK
AGUA POQUITA CREEK. Agua Poquita Creek rises twenty miles west of Benavides in southwestern Duval County (at 27°36' N, 98°43' W) and runs southeast for twenty-four miles, then joins Concepcion Creek to form Los Olmos Creek eight miles south of Benavides (at 27°30' N, 98°27' W). Its Spanish name, appropriately enough, means "little water." The surrounding terrain is flat and marked with shallow depressions. The land surface is clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
