Noise Suppression Plan

Noise levels from a range of activities in Montgomery County are regulated by the County's Noise Ordinance. In some cases, the noise limits for construction activities may be increased with the approval of a Noise Suppression Plan by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Construction activities may create noise up to 85 decibels from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM weekdays if they are operating under a DEP approved Noise Suppression Plan.
