Wash Post: 'How Loud is D.C.?'

A comprehensive District of Columbia noise survey conducted by the Washington Post appears in today's edition.

Reporter Marianne Seregi spent most of August recording decibel measurements at 21 locations throughout the city. Her story includes a very informative illustration about her findings. One amplified group at H and 8th Streets NE came in at #5.

She also explains two bills now pending before the D.C. City Council which residents hope will increase their quiet enjoyment of the city.

Read her story introduction here.

I noticed in addition to the volume levels, you can listen to some of the recordings...why no 8th and H St recording?

You'll have to ask the Post reporter about the recordings (keep in mind the recordings provide absolutely know bearing on the sound's loudness measured as decibels).

WTOP included sound clips (click on the audio controls on the left side of WTOP page) in a December 2006 story.

I've videotaped one amplified Saturday group and an amplified Sunday preacher.
