The first two phases of a three phase Texas Stream Team training program was held at the FOR Community Center on Saturday, May 1, 2010. Houston-Galvestion Area Council (H-GAC) trains Texas Stream Team volunteers how to collect quality assured river water samples that can be used to make environmentally sound decisions concerning the San Bernard.
Volunteers complete three phases of training using a test kit that measures physical and chemical parameters in water. They are asked to monitor their site(s) monthly at the same time of day each month, for a two year commitment. Monitoring takes approximately one to two hours.
