Research Finds High Levels of Microplastics in Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe has the third highest concentration of microplastics in the world, according to a study published in the journal Nature. Researchers found traces of microplastics in all of the 38 lakes and reservoirs they tested from six continents. The levels of microplastics in Lake Tahoe, which is less densely populated and has no sewage flowing into it, were higher than those in the ocean's garbage patches. The researchers are unsure how the plastics got into the freshwater lakes and are also examining the effects of the microplastics on the surrounding ecosystems.
