Microplastic Pollution: A Survey of Wastewater Effluent in the Lake Champlain Basin

Published 2018
This poster displays research by Danielle Garneau and her students at SUNY Plattsburgh to survey for microplastics from wastewater treatment facility post-treatment effluent from the city of Plattsburgh, NY and beginning in fall 2016 from St Albans, VT, Ticonderoga, NY, and Burlington, VT. This research was funded by Lake Champlain Sea Grant.

Soil Media CO2 and N2O Fluxes Dynamics from Sand-Based Roadside Bioretention Systems

Published 2018
This scientific journal article by Stephanie Hurley and others examines the greenhouse gas emission potential of bioretention systems. The researchers monitored eight roadside bioretention systems during two growing seasons to measure CO2-C and N2O-N fluxes. The study found that while there were season shifts in CO2 fluxes, bioretention systems are an overall net Carbon sink and not a significant source of N2O. The researchers give recommendations on how to further sequester carbon and nutrients in bioretention systems.
