Our noise environment is deteriorating in the city? Urban noise observatories in Quebec must be created!
Increased road traffic, industrialization, urban densification, our acoustic measurements seem to show that our noise environment is deteriorating particularly in the city. However, we have no historical data available to assess changes in environmental noise levels over time. Environment Canada freely releases data on temperatures, humidity, air quality but nothing on noise. It is time to create noise observatories in order to document the history of our sound environment and be able to act where the actions will be most effective. Hopefully the Environmental Noise Days planned for November 2019 will allow us to move forward on the subject.
