Widespread Plastic Pollution Found in Great Lakes Tributaries
Posted on: September 16, 2016

New research from the U. S. Geological Survey documents tiny pieces of plastic, called microplastics, in many rivers flowing to the Great Lakes.

…and by the way, don’t think that Superior avoids the microplastics issue. A sub-set of microplastics, called “nurdles”, which are used in the plastics manufacturing process, are a severe issue in Nipigon Bay and surrounding area. Thanks to Chuck Hutterli, who lives on the shore of Nipigon Bay near Gravel River, for working so hard to have this issue addressed.
