RED BANK CREEK (Taylor County). Red Bank Creek rises in southern Taylor County (at 32°10' N, 99°50' W) and flows east-southeast for seven miles to join Jim Ned Creek (at 32°07' N, 99°43' W). The stream is dammed a half mile south of Lawn to form Santa Fe Lake, a reservoir with a capacity of 530 acre-feet. Red Bank Creek flows through flat to gently sloping terrain surfaced by moderately deep to shallow silt loams that support mesquite and grasses. The lake is used for irrigation.
