Abstract

The present work is concerned with assessment of Noise pollution at different parks of Allahabad on weekdays (Normal Days). In the present study the Noise level were measured with the aid of TES1350A sound meter along with GPS location of the monitoring sites. The Noise pollution was found to be more than 50 dB (A) during day and 40 dB (A) in night which are the prescribed standard level for Silent Zone by CPCB at all parks under investigation on weekdays. The Lnp values for Sumitranandan Park was 79.06 dB (A), P D Tandon Park was 77.81 dB (A) and Chandrashekhar Park was 77.68 dB (A); these parks had highest level of noise pollution whereas Lnp values Minto park was 75.58 dB (A), Bharadwaj Park was 70.08 dB (A) and Khusro Bagh was 67.50 dB (A); these parks recorded lower level of noise pollution. The reason behind high level of pollution was the traffic passing by the park at some parks while other parks had low level of noise due to presence of tree plantation or about 10 meter high boundary or height of park level was above the road level. Therefore the noise pollution can be significantly reduced by developing green zone around the park as well as building wall (noise barrier) around the park.
