Abstract

The existence of environmental noise such as industrial noise and road noise can cause adverse negative health effect to the surrounding citizens of Ayer Keroh. This noise pollution also can bring several environmental hazards and subsequently harmful to human, animal and plant bodies. To overcome this problem, a good noise assessment is required. In this research, assessment of environmental noise pollution from Ayer Keroh industrial estate Melaka were conducted by using statistical approach. A noise maps will be developed into three zones which are based on the noise level emission, types of plant production and types of production heaviness. This maps will presented the region with level of sound pressure emission on the area and the characterized zones by different colours and contours. To develop the noise maps, the data were taken from 50 located points with a period from one to two weeks at 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and by using sound level meter. Then, data collected were rearranged, tabulated and characterized by using Microsoft Excel before developing a noise maps. Based on the results, the highest noise level produced is 78.1 dB(A) situated in food industries and the lowest is 53.2 dB(A) situated in plastic industries. The sources of noise is categorized in 6 categories which are manufacturing, plastics, offices, foods, others and lastly construction. Majority of the locations are categorized as normally acceptable sound emission level. Hence, it can be concluded that the assessment of environmental noise pollution from Ayer Keroh Industrial Estate Melaka using statistical approach is successfully done.
