Agua Azul Creek

General Entry

Agua Azul Creek rises four miles southwest of Mirando City in southeastern Webb County (at 27°22' N, 98°59' W) and runs southwest for eighteen miles to its mouth on Cerrito Creek, eleven miles southwest of Aguilares (at 27°21' N, 99°13' W). The area's low-rolling and flat terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support grasses, mesquite, chaparral, and water-tolerant hardwoods.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
