Noise Enforcement

What Is It?

Our Noise Enforcement Program acts through a variety of measures to minimize the public’s exposure to excessive noise from construction sites, maintenance activity, and installed mechanical equipment. To do this, we:

  • Review permitted mechanical equipment installation plans for compliance with the Seattle Noise Code
  • Investigate noise complaints generated from construction sites, maintenance activity, and installed mechanical equipment
  • Assist City departments, contractors, and the general public in evaluating and reducing the noise impacts of their activities
  • Review all applications requesting relief from the requirements of the Seattle Noise Code (called noise variances)

For more information about this program, read the Noise Code page.
