§ 36-3. Sound pressure level measurement instrumentation.  

Latest version.
  • (a)

    Any sound pressure level that is measured must be taken with a sound level meter and at an A-weighting network.


    If the noise from the source premises interferes with the measurement of the background sound level at the receptor premises, then measurements to determine the background sound level may be taken at another location in the vicinity or at another time or both; provided that the conditions at the alternative location or the alternative time or both are similar to the conditions at the receptor premises at the time of the noise measurement.
