Also it causes damage to high elevation trees and sensitive soil. Finally it causes building materials to decay more rapidly. Measuring Acid Rain Acid rain is measured using a scale called pH. The lower a substances pH the more acidic it is. The water we drink has a pH level of 7 since it is neutral but since rain is normally slightly acidic its level is 5.6. What is pH?
