ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - Studies released by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency shows a wide variety of chemicals from illegal drugs, bug spray, prescription medicines and personal care products are being found in lakes and rivers around the state. The most often detected was DEET, a mosquito repellent, along with antidepressants, antibiotics and cocaine. Even though the chemicals were found at very low levels, the MPCA is still concerned because several of them are known to interfere with hormone function in fish and other aquatic organisms.
