Acid rain is a rain or any other form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, i.e. elevated levels of hydrogen ions (low pH). It can have harmful effects on plants, aquatic animals, and infrastructure through the process of wet deposition.

Acid rain remains a problem, however, now there are some modern power plants that have scrubbers to remove sulfur compounds from their flue gases, which have helped to reduce this problem. See this article for details.
