Here is a link to a news story that documents the relationship between home lawn chemical use and occurence of those chemicals in streams and runoff.  Although this study was done out west, there is absolutely no reason to think that use of lawn chemicals in the Upper Midwest, including Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota is not resulting in the same offsite contamination of aquatic ecosystem components.  Unfortunately, lawn chemicals used in large portions of these three states end up in the Great Lakes.
