Texas Stream Team
Texas Stream Team is a state-wide volunteer stream monitoring program. The program is sponsored by a partnership between the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Texas State University. For more information on getting involved in the Texas Watch Program, call 972-237-8055. Water quality is closely linked to air, land and human concerns. The protection of air, water, land and humans requires the cooperative participation of all Texans. Environmental Services is currently looking for more groups or individuals to become volunteer monitors to this important program.
