Barraceto (Barrocito) Creek rises eleven miles east of Aguilares in southwestern Webb County (at 27°16' N, 99°08' W) and runs northwest for nine miles to its mouth on Agua Azul Creek, sixteen miles south of Laredo (at 27°20' N, 99°13' W). It traverses low-rolling and flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support grasses, mesquite, chaparral, and water-tolerant hardwoods.
