RHA Study Finds Microplastics in South Branch Waters
Raritan Headwaters Association issued the following news release:
Plastics are pervasive in our everyday lives. It's nearly impossible to go even a day without using - and discarding - plastic items.
Less than 10 percent of plastics are recycled, and many find their way into the environment, where they weather and eventually break down into smaller pieces. Microplastics - particles so small as to be nearly invisible - are emerging as a threat to aquatic life and human health.
