RETAMIA CREEK. Retamia (Retama) Creek rises five miles northwest of Aguilares in south central Webb County (at 27°30' N, 99°07' W) and runs southwest for twelve miles to its mouth on San Juanita Creek, nine miles southwest of Aguilares (at 27°23' N, 99°14' W). It traverses flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by expansive clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
