Efforts to address acid rain in the west refocused specifically on the Tar Sands development in Alberta. In the east, resources for acid rain research were refocused on other emerging air quality issues and with the success of the Air Quality Agreement, there is little impetus to take a deeper look at the legacy of acid rain. It is known that acidification of lake systems cannot be “undone” and can have effects such as the release of heavy metals from soil and rock into the environment. 3 discusses heavy metals.

It was found that deposition of sulphates in precipitation in excess of 20 kg/ha per year damaged moderately sensitive aquatic ecosystems (UN ECE 2013a). The United States never did accept the concept of critical loads. S. President Ronald Reagan eliminated energy and environment research, which started at the US EPA and other agencies in 1975, but retained the $12 million (USD) per year for acid rain research. S. MOI was stopped until more scientific evidence could be presented on LRTAP and effects.

There are several key differences between the air pollution caused by ground level ozone and that caused by acid rain. Ozone is not “released” from sources as a pollutant, rather it forms in the atmosphere under certain conditions (such as the presence of sunlight) from “precursors” which are emitted. In fact nitrogen oxides, that are also part of the acid rain issue, play an important role in the atmospheric chemistry causing the formation of ozone. The other chemical family that is important in the process are the volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
