Request for Participation in Microplastics Scoping Meeting

RFHP members,

See below for a scoping meeting to discuss your state's interest and involvement in a reservoir micro plastics project.  Agencies from Southern Division and North Central Division have expressed interest, but we are not limiting it to this geographical area.  If you have any questions feel free to call or e-mail us.


Hello agency partners,

Some of you have been hearing discussions about sampling microplastics in reservoirs, and we would like to further develop this project with your input. We will be holding a 1-hour virtual meeting to discuss project ideas, designs, and objectives for a US-wide effort to sample microplastics in reservoirs. All states and interested parties are welcome to join the meeting. We expect some participants will want to be formally included in the project as it develops; however, this is a scoping meeting, and no future commitment is required.

Please complete the availability poll by Friday, December 1. The most popular date and time will be selected, and we will follow up the week of 12/4 with a calendar invite and meeting link.

We look forward to your involvement and ideas as we develop this important project.

Please send any questions to one or more of the following project leads below.
