Tlshealy, the water samples, along with data collection sheets, go to the University of Tennessee where they have been collecting this data for over 20 years. Overall, the acid levels in the Smokies streams has been declining somewhat since the installation of scrubbers in TVA's coal fired steamplants. However, the residual deposits in the soil would continue to leach out for decades if no other deposits were added. Baby steps but steps in the right direction.
