Re: Acid Rain
Along these lines, I read an article a few years ago about how the constant
addition of limestone to the upper Potomac river, to nutralize something
leaching out of old mines, has "improved" the water quality beyond what it
was before mining. Improved in terms of number of fish hatching. Wouldn't
that also be a bad thing? Not to mention the effect on our drinking water.
I believe they were looking at the Trout population, and I can understand
this since the limestone streams in Pennsylvania are supposed to be great
for trout, but what about the other fish which the trout feed on as well as
feed on the trout?
I believe the chemical they are trying to neutralize is cyanide, but I could
be wrong. I'll have to see if I still have that article.
To make this "List friendly", I believe there are some killies in the
Potomac, But Dave Koran could asnwer that better than I could.
