Anywho, is there any way this acid rain influence can be balanced out and perhaps even made to swing a little the other way, like a limestone stream? Probably a dumb question but I was just wondering. I know every time "man" tries to overcome something in nature, he usually misjudges and nature usually suffers something else, but ...just asking.
Yes, West Virginia has been adding limestone to certain streams for years with good results and good fishing. I understand that North Carolina currently has a plan to add limestone to one or more trout streams as part of a test project.
