Kingsbery Substation Noise Study

Project Name: Kingsbery Substation Noise Study

Project Location: Austin, Texas

Project Type: Noise Data Collection

Owner:  City of Austin

Hicks &  Company participated in a 24-hour onsite point source noise measurement study and modeling for the City of Austin for a proposed expansion to a power station. The measurements were taken at three locations. Noise measurements were conducted with a sound meter meeting the latest revision of American National Standards (ANSI) S1.4 for a Type 1, Precision Sound Level Meter, equipped with a one-half inch microphone. The purpose of the study was to provide a map of sound level contours to determine the most effective options for noise mitigation, if necessary.
