The Texas Stream Team (TST) is a voluntary group of citizen scientists which seek to protect our state’s water resources. The TST is a collaboration between Texas State University, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and the Environmental Protection Agency.
Currently, the Texas Stream Team is dedicated to understanding and protecting the 191,000 miles of Texas waterways. The program brings together community members, students, educators, academic researchers, environmental professionals, and both public and private sector partners to conduct scientific research and to promote environmental stewardship.
This citizen scientist program seeks preservation of our state’s waterways through trained volunteers who conduct water quality monitoring on their local lakes, rivers, streams, and estuaries across the state. The volunteers submit their data to a database maintained by the Town of Flower Mound and The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University.
