ABSTRACT
Rapid urbanization and industrialization even though facilite our lives, leads to various forms of
environmental pollution. This paper presents the results obtained in a study on environmental noise pollution in the
city of Salem. Road traffic noise has been a major contributor to the annoyance, which is substantiated by the result
of continuous monitoring of noise equivalent levels (Leq) at a number of silence, resi- dential, commercial, industrial
zones and road intersections. In conclusion, the noise pollution of the city is wide spread throughout most of its area,
where measured noise levels are similar to those commonly observed in cities that do not have mitigation
programmers’. Public participation, education, traffic management, structural designing play a major role in noise
management.
