Amends the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (also known as the Clean Water Act) to allow any State to prepare and submit for approval to the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency: (1) a survey of water quality deterioration in the State which has resulted from acid deposition; and (2) methods and procedures to restore the water quality insofar as it has deteriorated as a result of acid deposition.

Directs the Administrator to provide financial assistance to States to carry out such approved methods and procedures. Limits the amount of any such grant to 80 percent of the State expenditure for carrying out the approved methods and procedures. Directs the Administrator to provide for equitable distribution of such grants on the basis of the relative need of each State for the restoration of water quality which has deteriorated as a result of acid deposition. Provides that such grants shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other Federal assistance.

Authorizes appropriations to carry out this Act for FY 1984 through 1988.
