'Blowers on sewage treatment works' article from May-June 2022 Acoustics Bulletin
The significant ‘visibility’ of sewage works sites means that they are often identified as the source of community noise issues with and without justification. This article explains how this can lead to complex investigation and assessment exercises to establish connections between source and perceived sound, and evaluate appropriate reductions.
The article was written by Richard A Collman and Mike Hewett and published in the May-June '22 article of the IOA Bulletin for members.
