6. These data illustrate that acid episodes still affect stream organisms in spite of continued recovery in air and water quality and this may be a sufficient explanation for slow biological recovery in many locations. Episodic effects may impose important controls on organisms as recovering sites reach the base-flow pH range 5.5-7. The strongest recommendation is for better understanding and monitoring of the hydrochemistry and biological effects of acid episodes as acid deposition abates.
