This paper presents data characterizing the changes of waters chemical composition in the Southern Baikal for 20-year period of observations impacted by precipitations with high content of pollutants. Levels of acidic components accumulation in the snow cover of river basins are calculated. Resistance of river waters to acidification at different levels of acidic charge is determined for each water flow.
