The Environmental Quality Board (EQB), a government agency in Puerto Rico, is responsible for protecting the environment and quality of life on the island. One area of concern for the EQB is noise pollution. This project analyzed the levels and effects of noise in open spaces, such as parks, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Surveys were administered to open-space visitors during noise measurements to determine how people perceived various sources and levels of noise at the time of exposure. We investigated whether our measured noise levels comply with current legislation. Finally, we recommended that the EQB improves current regulations and their enforcement, lowers traffic noise, and increases public awareness through education.
