Microplastic pollution is becoming an increasing issue in our world. These harmful particles impact human health and often end up polluting aquatic environments, entering the water column through the dumping of industrial waste, domestic inputs, runoff, and the degradation of large plastics. The primary aim of this study was to quantify the abundance of microplastic pollution along Red Butte Creek, a tributary of the Jordan River that flows through the Salt Lake Valley of central Utah.
