Strategies for Mitigating the Proliferation of Microplastics in Worcester Waterways Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
We partnered with the Worcester Department of Public Works (DPW) to conduct an inaugural series of microplastics testing in Worcester. Our tests could not determine if there were microplastics exiting the Middle River; however, there were larger plastics. Utilizing the information we gained from our tests and outreach we recommend that the Worcester DPW&P begin to conduct microplastics testing and regularly survey Worcester residents’ opinions regarding plastics. Additionally, we recommend that WPI create projects pertaining to Worcester’s microplastics.
