Letter: Noise is mushrooming out of control
To the editor:
All of these noise pollutants are mushrooming out of control. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized noise pollution as a real problem. Their studies, and those of others, have revealed that noise pollution actually degrades our quality of life, even threatening our health.
Alexandria has city codes to deal with these particular issues (Sect. 9.85; Subd. 1 – Noise; and Subd. 2G – Exhausts). Unfortunately, neither is followed nor enforced.
Yes, there are noise decibels high enough to burst our eardrums. “Is Alexandria too loud?” Do you think!
