SPRING CREEK (Crockett County). Spring Creek rises in northern Crockett County (at 31°04' N, 101°14' W) and runs northeast forty-eight miles into Irion County, through Mertzon, to its mouth on the Twin Buttes Reservoir, on the Concho River in Tom Green County (at 31°20' N, 100°36' W). It crosses flat, dissected terrain and some rolling prairie, at an elevation of 2,050 to 2,200 feet above sea level, surfaced by shallow, stony soil that supports tall grasses, mesquite, oak, and juniper.
