Noise pollution: NH15-595/1971E-PDF

study report.

"The clear theme which emerges from this study is the need for involvement by all levels of government and the creation of public awareness of the noise problem. A simple corrective policy by one agency will lead to waste of available resources, inequality of standards and distortion of the solution. For example, a uniform noise abatement standard for vehicular traffic will greatly reduce the need and cost of installing acoustic insulation in nearby buildings. The responsibility of the Corporation with regard to noise pollution is largely one of initiation and direction of the research for the noise problem solutions as they affect residential communities. The immediate specific interest of the Corporation is the improvement on a more factual basis the standards contained in the Site Planning Handbook and the improvement of the livability of the individual dwelling unit by revisions to the sound control requirements of the National Building Code"--Introd., p. [4] of cover.
