CONSTRUCTION NOISE: SPECIFICATION, CONTROL MEASUREMENT, AND MITIGATION

This report introduces noise as a problem, its effects on man, and Army requirements for the prevention of excessive noise. With this background, sample specifications are prepared to control construction-site noise and the means established to monitor compliance. Measurement of noise at the construction site boundary (according to the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Recommended Practice) is strongly recommended. The specifications are considered economically reasonable at present but should be reviewed periodically as laws and technology change. Special nighttime requirements are consistent with New York City, San Francisco, German Law, and Federal EPA assessments. Information is given on state and local noise regulations and on noise-mitigation techniques.
