ENVIRONMENTAL NOISE POLLUTION

The EPA was responsible for establishing environmental noise pollution rules, but in 1981, this was turned over to the states and today many municipalities, cities and counties have established their own noise exposure standards for control of environmental noise pollution.  In most cases, these levels are very low and they are focused on minimizing disruption in communities from noise, rather than protecting individuals from hearing loss. High EH&S has been involved in environmental noise pollution evaluations. These are most often derived from complaints from neighbors who feel that an organization is generating too much noise. We evaluate the code and perform perimeter monitoring to determine if legal levels are exceeded and provide guidance on abatement options.
