Although acid rain is not considered a serious problem in Texas, rain becomes slightly acid as it falls because it dissolves carbondioxide and nitrogen. The pH or rainwater is about5.7, whereas a pH of 7.0 is neutral. with the rain in Northeast Texas being the most acidic in the state.
If acidity is a problem, however, one tablespoon of baking soda per 100 gallons of water will neutralize the acid.
