What we monitor
We use noise monitoring equipment to:
- address concerns about speedway noise
- measure noise levels every five minutes and note any breaches to the maximum noise level of 89db
- ensure the overall event complies with an average overall level of 83dB
- ensure that activities comply with the district plan.
We also monitor wind speed, which is essential.
Weather conditions have a significant impact on noise levels. When wind speed exceeds 5m/sec, we cannot take readings as results will be inaccurate.
