SANTO TOMAS CREEK
SANTO TOMAS CREEK. Santo Tomas Creek rises twenty-one miles west of Callaghan in central Webb County (at 27°52' N, 99°45' W) and runs south for twelve miles to its mouth on the Rio Grande, sixteen miles northwest of Laredo (at 27°43' N, 99°45' W). The surrounding rolling hills and flat terrain have locally shallow depressions and are surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, grasses, and water-tolerant hardwoods.
