Texas Stream Team LogoTexas Stream Team is a network of trained volunteers and supportive partners working together 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). Currently, hundreds of Texas Stream Team volunteers collect water quality data on lakes, rivers, streams, wetlands, bays, bayous, and estuaries in Texas.

Texas Stream Team is a program of the River Systems Institute at Texas State University-San Marcos and is partnering with Service Learning Texas to train students at Healthy Habitats sites as certified water quality monitors, which ensures that the data that students collect locally from rivers and streams contribute to ongoing monitoring of water resources in riparian zones in the state.
