This publication is intended to promote understanding of EPA's findings about levels of environmental noise that protect public health and welfare. It seeks to clarify the proper use of the 1974 'Levels Document' by interpreting its contents in less technical terms. The manual deals with measurement descriptors of environmental noise. Also addressed are the best understood effects of noise on people (hearing damage, speech interference and annoyance). Protective levels are summarized.
Condensed version of "Information on levels of environmental noise requisite to protect public health and welfare with an adequate margin of safety", EPA/ONAC 550/9-74-004, March 1979. "November 1978." "EPA/550-9-79-100."
