ESPADA CREEK

ESPADA CREEK. Espada Creek rises thirty-two miles northwest of Callaghan in northwestern Webb County (at 28°07' N, 99°54' W) and runs south nineteen miles to its mouth on the Rio Grande, thirty-one miles northwest of Laredo (at 27°54' N, 99°54' W). It traverses flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by expansive clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. Espada is Spanish for "sword."
