The conservation department’s stream teams have grown by more than 200 in the last year, meaning there are now more than 1,400 groups cleaning up creeks and rivers and running water quality tests. The program now is in its 11th year. Last year, team members ran water quality tests on 330 locations. Despite all the numbers and all the reports, program coordinator Paul Calvert admits there’s no way to determine if Missouri’s creeks and rivers really are better than they were when the program began ten years ago.
