Description

Chronic exposure to environmental noise can lead to adverse health effects. Noise pollution can disrupt sleep patterns at home and reduce productiveness in the workplace. While sources of this noise pollution can vary, the results of unchecked noise disturbances in a community are detrimental to the overall health of the population. The Environmental Public Health Program at the Kansas City Health Department is responsible for enforcing the City's Noise Control Ordinance. The complaint driven system has bred several unique challenges, each requiring an innovative solution to ensure long term compliance. This presentation will discuss several challenges faced and the unique solutions developed to address each one.
