The purpose of this handbook is to provide information about what atmospheric deposition is, how it can be measured, and how the significance of the problem may be determined for a particular area. The handbook may not answer all your questions directly; rather, it is intended to lead you in the right direction and provide enough information to decide how to address the issue in your area. Atmospheric deposition is now recognized in many areas as a significant cause of water quality problems, acidification of streams and lakes, and toxic contamination of fish and the birds and mammals that eat them. Several National Estuary Programs (NEPs) have calculated that atmospheric deposition of at least one pollutant is a significant portion of the total pollutant load to their estuaries. It is something water resource managers are finding they may need to take into account if they are to be effective stewards of their environmental resources. There are challenges to managing the problem. For example, traditionally there has been a separation of air and water legislation and programs in all levels of government.
