This report is designed to document the technical results of a 2-1/2 year Noise Control Program in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. While the program consisted of many facets--public education, complaint analysis, community noise survey, publicity, legislation drafting, and public hearings--only the survey and legislation are detailed. First, metrics are selected for describing a community noise environment. Specific parameters influencing community noise are evaluated and used to develop a survey methodology. Survey data are presented and analyzed according to such parameters as time of day, noise source, land use, and municipality. Finally, the results are incorporated into community noise legislation.
