Trinidad and Tornado State of the Environment Report 2003 - Noise Pollution

Environmental Management Authority (EMA) (2003)

The EMA’s 2003 Annual Report continues a tradition of periodic detailed review of the state of aspects of the environment requiring special attention. Due to the very large and rapidly increasing number of public complaints about noise, the EMA has selected the management of noise for special attention. In the Noise Pollution Control Rules, 2001, Parliament gave the EMA new duties to control ambient noise levels. The 2003 State of the Environment Report is the first attempt to reflect on the experience so far in implementing the new legislation.
