Abstract:

In recent years, noise from construction sites has been an increasing problem for the Corps of Engineers. This report introduces noise as a problem, how it affects 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. Finally, information is given on state and local noise regulations and on noise-mitigation techniques.
