On environmental noise impact

Corjan Buma

Abstract


A set of guidelines on environmental noise impact assessments, applicable on a national scale, is discussed. The experience with environmental noise in Alberta is also considered. In Alberta the energy sector is the only industry where specific legislation is compiled on a provincial basis governing environmental noise. The advantages of environment noise impact assessment guidelines are nation-wide consistency, more-level playing field, function as a target in setting basic sound levels and methodology to achieve them.
