Purushottam Kumar Sahu, Sushila Sahu


The aim of the study was to describe the behavior of environmental noise levels in communities around the city of Indore. Four noise stations were monitored for twenty-four hours in order to describe the levels of environmental noise. The study used a noise level meter (Model1900meter) which is the simplest instrument available to determine sound level. It indicates the root mean square value of the sound. The observation reveals that noise level is exceeding the permissible limits in the following area-Silence, residential and commercial and industrial. The study offers several recommendations which if implemented, would reduce significantly the noise levels in the city.
