White Water Creek


White Water Creek rises two miles north of Newcastle in central Young County (at 33°14' N, 98°43' W) and runs northeast for four miles to its mouth on Salt Creek, six miles southwest of Jean (at 33°15' N, 98°40' W). Much of the area surrounding the creek is made up of oilfields and ranchland. The rolling prairies are surfaced by clay loams that support mesquite and grasses.

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