After a long pause, the City of Arlington has relaunched its community scientist program. Texas Stream Team is a statewide environmental education and volunteer-based water quality monitoring program run by The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University for 30+ years. Through TST, community scientists are trained to monitor water quality in our lakes and creeks by collecting and analyzing surface water at specific sites. The reports are then uploaded to a statewide database where problems may be detected and interventions designed by water professionals.  The TST program serves to protect the 191,000 miles of Texas waterways through this network of local public-private environmental stewards.
