Microplastics are increasingly being detected in freshwater systems and can have negative impacts on the environment including growth limitations of aquatic organisms, degraded water quality through the sorption of inorganic pollutants and heavy metals, and a reduction in the dewaterability of activated sludge. Our study will provide better understanding of the source of microplastics in freshwater bodies in Nebraska as well as the dominant plastic types that occur in suburban and agricultural areas.
