What makes water acidic?



  1. 0 Votes

    Water becomes acidic with the dissolution of chemicals within it that have a ph lower than the neutral 7. These chemicals are commonly produced in industrial exhaust or run-offs and can create atmospheric acid rain or acidify liquid reservoirs.

    Acidic water can be caused by a number of different sources. Simple corrosion of material such as those of more private water tanks, can definitely be one cause. Acid rain makes water acidic especially in certain areas such as the Northeastern U.S. Actually, the water cycle can be tainted in general due to anthropogenic pollution coming from industrial or agriculture sources. Even animal feces can make water more acidic.
