Abstract (300 words maximum)

A protocol was developed for consistency in the analysis of sediment for microfibers from twelve locations around Lake Allatoona. Sediments were obtained in the winter of 2021/2022 when the lake water was at its lowest. Lake Allatoona is manmade, fed by a river and flows into a river via a power plant. A wastewater plant discharges into the lake. This protocol was developed following the NOAA prescribed method with alterations based on results obtained. A description of the alterations will be provided.
