Arroyo Miguel

General Entry

Arroyo Miguel rises twelve miles southeast of Zapata in south central Zapata County (at 26°52' N, 99°05' W) and runs southwest for ten miles to its mouth on the International Falcon Reservoir, a half mile east of U.S. Highway 83 (at 26°44 N, 99°06 W). It crosses low-rolling to flat terrain surfaced by shallow to deep sandy and clay loams that support scrub brush, grasses, and cacti.

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