According to the Table above, the pH of the Ashby Reservoir had sample taken in the 3 months of each year (spring, summer, and winter months). Of the current data we can tell that climate had a somewhat effect on the levels of pH, with the fact that for the most part the pH levels only dropped in the spring and rising once again in the winter of each year. Other factors that might have had an impact on the levels of

Unformatted text preview: pH might have been the amount of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides in the water. pH of the Ashby Reservoir of Ashby y-axis = pH of Ashby Reservoir No, the drinking water reservoir has not been affected by acid deposition, because the pH levels are between 6.26-6.64 which; according to the pH table these levels of pH are weak and do not contain acid rain nor acid deposition because they are not less than the normal rainwater pH levels (5.6-6.5)...
