Abstract

Noise is that which disrupts daily routine and quality of life. Noise level when more than permissible level in environment then it is called noise pollution. When sound disturbs sleeping, working and conservation becomes undesirable. As noise cannot be seen, tasted and smell. It is underrated environmental problem. One of the most common pollutants is community or environmental noise. As per WHO it is emitted from all sources except industrial workplace noise. In community noise air traffic, road, rail and construction, public work with neighborhood (WHO-1999). The study emphasize on noise levels and its impact on Udgir. The main cause of headache, dizziness and high blood pressure are due to high level of noise. In this view the investigation had been made on four sites viz.. Shivaji Chowk, Methodist School, Captain K Chowk and Nanded Naka. In this study it is found that noise levels are more than permissible standards at Shivaji Chowk Methodist school, and Captain K Chowk . The db levels at Nanded Naka is at alarming levels of 55 to 60db.All other locations are having higher db levels.
