SAN JUANITA CREEK. San Juanita (Juanito) Creek rises nine miles north of Aguilares in south central Webb County (at 27°36' N, 99°17' W) and runs south for twenty-seven miles to its mouth on Blancas Creek, fifteen miles southeast of Laredo (at 27°18' N, 99°17' W). The surrounding low rolling and flat terrain has locally shallow depressions and is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support grasses, mesquite, chaparral, and water-tolerant hardwoods.
