PINTAS CREEK. Pintas Creek rises three miles east of Alice in central Jim Wells County (at 27°45' N, 98°01' W) and runs east for twenty-one miles to its mouth on Petronila Creek, four miles north of Driscoll in western Nueces County (at 27°44' N, 97°46' W). It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
