Texas Stream Team is a network of trained volunteers and supportive partners working to gather information about the natural resources of Texas and to ensure the information is available to all Texans. Established in 1991, Texas Stream Team is administered through a cooperative partnership between Texas State University, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Hundreds of Texas Stream Team volunteers currently collect water quality data on lakes, rivers, streams, wetlands, bays, bayous, and estuaries in Texas.
The City of Sugar Land and Keep Sugar Land Beautiful formed a Sugar Land Texas Stream Team in partnership with the Houston Galveston Area Council to monitor local creeks and streams in Sugar Land in 2008.
All volunteers must complete three phases of training. Volunteers will be making a two-year commitment to monitor their assigned site, monthly, at the same time of day each month. Monitoring takes approximately one to two hours each month. A water quality monitoring kit, for each site, will be provided upon completion of training. Volunteers under age 18 must have an adult complete all training and monitor their site with them each month.
Dedicated involved volunteers are critical for a successsful program. We hope you’ll join us!!
