BOTELLA CREEK. Botella Creek rises fourteen miles southwest of Carrizo Springs in western Dimmit County (at 28°23' N, 100°01' W) and runs southwest for five miles to its mouth on Rosita San Juan Creek, nineteen miles southwest of Carrizo Springs in eastern Maverick County (at 28°21' N, 100°07' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine, sandy loam that supports brush and grasses; toward the creek's mouth the land is flat with locally shallow depressions and a surface of sandy and clay loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
