Texas Stream Team
Texas Stream Team is a joint collaboration of The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and the US Environmental Protection Agency. It is a statewide environmental education and volunteer-based water quality monitoring program. Through Texas Stream Team, community scientists are trained to collect and submit surface water and environmental quality data that can then be used to promote and protect the 191,000 miles of Texas waterways. Texas Stream Team brings together community members, students, educators, academic researchers, environmental professionals, and both public and private sector partners to conduct scientific research and promote environmental stewardship.
