Acid Rain Program

An acid rain monitoring program (the Newfoundland Environment Precipitation Monitoring Network (NEPMoN)) operated between 1983 and 2004. NEPMoN consisted of a series of wet-only precipitation collectors set up at specially selected sites across Newfoundland and Labrador. The number of sites peaked at seven in 1995 but was cut back to two in 1996 due to decreased funding. In 1998, the program was revived to five sites with support from provincial industries. One of the previous sites was re-opened in addition to the opening of two new sites. The weekly wet-only precipitation data from these stations were used to complement the daily data collected by Environment Canada's Canadian Air and Precipitation Monitoring Network(CAPMoN) Stations in the Province (Bay d'Espoir and Goose Bay).
