Texas Stream Team (TST) is a joint collaboration of The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and US Environmental Protection Agency. TST coordinates a network of partner organizations and trained volunteers, termed citizen scientists, to conduct water quality monitoring at assigned sites on their local lakes, rivers, streams, and estuaries across the state. Citizen scientists currently monitor 105 quality sites in the North Texas region.

The citizen scientist program seeks to increase public knowledge of water quality issues and non-point source pollution across the state through water quality monitoring, data collection and analysis, and related educational programs. The information collected by citizen scientists is submitted to a database containing 23 years of data on hundreds of sampling sites maintained by The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment.

As a result of the COVID-19 health pandemic, the implementation of the City of Arlington’s Stream Team program has been provisionally delayed.
