But acid deposition continues to affect ecological systems and is likely contributing to forest degradation, fish kills, and tainted water quality. The general symptoms of forest decline due to acid deposition may include all of the following except: enter the atmosphere directly, whereas secondary pollutants.

The Clean Air Act added regulatory programs for control of acid deposition (acid rain) and stationary source operating permits. The provisions aimed at reducing sulfur dioxide emissions included a cap-and-trade program, which gave power companies more flexibility in meeting the law's goals compared to earlier iterations of the Clean Air Enacted by: the 88th United States Congress.

Beyond emission control, chemical recovery from acid deposition can be accomplished by addition of calcium carbonate or other weatherable calcium minerals to soil through a process referred to as liming (Driscoll et al., ; Lawrence et al., ).

acid rain or acid deposition, form of precipitation (rain, snow, sleet, or hail) containing high levels of sulfuric or nitric acids (pH below –).Produced when sulfur dioxide and various nitrogen oxides combine with atmospheric moisture, acid rain can contaminate drinking water, damage vegetation and aquatic life, and erode buildings and monuments.

Dry acid deposition occurs near the emission source, while wet deposition occurs in more distant areas. true Most of the world's forests and lakes are being destroyed or seriously harmed by acid deposition.
