Texas Stream Team
The City of Grapevine is a partner of the Texas Stream Team, a statewide environmental education and water quality monitoring program focused on protecting the 191,000 miles of Texas waterways. The program is a joint partnership between The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
This citizen scientist program educates the community and promotes environmental stewardship by training volunteers to conduct monthly water quality tests on their local lakes, rivers, streams, and estuaries. Volunteers submit their data to a database maintained by the Meadows Center for Water and the Environment so that it may be used by local and state environmental professionals, students, educators, academic researchers, and others to better understand and protect our Texas waterways.
