DRY CREEK (Sterling County). Dry Creek rises in the southeast corner of Sterling County (at 31°35' N, 100°55' W) and runs northeast for twelve miles, through the Water Valley oilfield in Tom Green County, to its mouth on the North Concho River (at 31°40' N, 100°46' W). The stream traverses flat to rolling lands with local escarpments and deep, fine, sandy loam soils that support brush, grasses, and cacti.
