How quickly does acid rain get back into the water cycle?

    Being rain (but with the addition of acid through atmospheric pollution), acid rain is a part of the water cycle.  After rain hits the ground, it will be absorbed by the ground, or it will runoff into water bodies (or both).  It will then be stored in the water body until the temperature of the atmosphere causes it to be evaporated and then become precipitation again.  The water may be stored, such as in glaciers or ice bergs.  Once water is contaminated, like acid rain, it will stay that way until it is cleaned somehow, either naturally or by humans.
