DRY LIPAN CREEK. Dry Lipan Creek rises near Susan Peak oilfield in southeastern Tom Green County (at 31°14' N, 100°19' W) and runs northeast for twenty-three miles to its mouth on Lipan Creek, north of Mereta at Farm Road 1692 (at 31°28' N, 100°08' W). It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
