The Texas Stream Team is a network of trained volunteers and supportive partners working together to understand and protect Texas waterways. Texas Stream Team is administered through a cooperative partnership between Texas State University, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Hundreds of Texas Stream Team volunteers collect water quality data on waterways throughout Texas. The City of Arlington is a Partner with the Texas Stream Team Program by supporting local volunteers who perform sampling in Arlington.

The only qualification is an interest in protecting Texas’ natural resources! Volunteers complete three phases of training using a test kit that measures physical and chemical parameters in water. Volunteers are asked to monitor their site(s) monthly at the same time of day each month, for a one-year commitment. Monitoring takes approximately one to two hours per month per site.

Visit The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment for more information about Texas Stream Team.
