NOISE POLLUTION
WHAT IS NOISE POLLUTION?
 Sound that is unwanted or disrupts one’s quality of life is
called as noise. When there is lot of noise in the
environment, it is termed as noise pollution.
 Sound becomes undesirable when it disturbs the normal
activities such as working, sleeping, and during
conversations.
 It is an underrated environmental problem because of the
fact that we can’t see, smell, or taste it.
 World Health Organization stated that “Noise must be
recognized as a major threat to human well-being”
HEALTH EFFECTS
 According to the USEPA, there are direct links between noise
and health. Also, noise pollution adversely affects the lives of
millions of people.
 Noise pollution can damage physiological and psychological
health.
 High blood pressure, stress related illness, sleep disruption,
hearing loss, and productivity loss are the problems related to
noise pollution.
 It can also cause memory loss, severe depression, and panic
attacks.
SOURCES OF NOISE POLLUTION
 Transportation systems are the main source of noise pollution
in urban areas.
 Construction of buildings, highways, and streets cause a lot of
noise, due to the usage of air compressors, bulldozers,
loaders, dump trucks, and pavement breakers.
 Industrial noise also adds to the already unfavorable state of
noise pollution.
 Loud speakers, plumbing, boilers, generators, air
conditioners, fans, and vacuum cleaners add to the existing
noise pollution.
SOLUTIONS FOR NOISE
POLLUTION
 Planting bushes and trees in and around sound generating
sources is an effective solution for noise pollution.
 Regular servicing and tuning of automobiles can effectively
reduce the noise pollution.
 Buildings can be designed with suitable noise absorbing
material for the walls, windows, and ceilings.
 Workers should be provided with equipments such as ear
plugs and earmuffs for hearing protection.
SOLUTIONS FOR NOISE
POLLUTION
 Similar to automobiles, lubrication of the machinery and
servicing should be done to minimize noise generation.
 Soundproof doors and windows can be installed to block
unwanted noise from outside.
 Regulations should be imposed to restrict the usage of
play loudspeakers in crowded areas and public places.
 Factories and industries should be located far from the
residential areas.
SOLUTIONS FOR NOISE
POLLUTION
 Community development or urban management should
be done with long-term planning, along with an aim to
reduce noise pollution.
 Social awareness programs should be taken up to
educate the public about the causes and effects of noise
pollution.
