The Project

  • Environmental Noise Analysis
  • Noise Mitigation
  • Noise Code Compliance

The project was an electrical utility substation required to meet municipal noise code and operator noise limit standards in a residential area.

Our Role

BRC conducted sound level measurements at Bakerview Substation in Bellingham, WA, to determine whether the facility was in compliance with allowable noise limits. Although sound levels were within allowable limits of the governing noise code (WAC 173-60), BRC developed measures to mitigate levels to conform to more stringent standards provided by Puget Sound Energy.
