What is being done to decrease the acidity of U.S. rainfall?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The steps undertaken to decrease the acidity of the rain in U.S. are to be explained.

Concept Introduction:

Acid rain occurs due to emissions of nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, and the combustion of fossil fuels. The typically detected pH for acid rain is less than 5.6.

Explanation of Solution

In 1990, Congress approved various amendments to the Clean Air Act in order to reduce the effects of acid rain in the United States. These amendments required the electric utility companies to cut their sulfur dioxide discharge to half the levels of 1980 by 2010
