LIVEOAK CREEK (Uvalde County). Liveoak Creek, a small intermittent floodwater creek, rises (at 29°07' N, 99°50' W) in Uvalde County a quarter mile east of U.S. Highway 83 and two miles north of the Zavala county line and runs south for eight miles to its mouth (at 29°02' N, 99°50' W) on the Nueces River, a mile east of the Missouri Pacific line in north central Zavala County. Willow Tank, Live Oak Tank, and Ninemile Tank were in the area in 1960. The local terrain is flat to rolling prairie, surfaced by deep loams that support mesquites and various grasses.
