Abstract

This paper presents the results obtained from environmental noise measurement at selected locations throughout Malaysia. Five different locations throughout Malaysia were selected to establish background noise level and dominant noise sources at these locations. The five sites included in this case study are Lahad Datu to present the noise scenario for East Malaysia, Jana Manjung, Perak to represent the West Peninsular Malaysia, Tangga Batu, Melaka to represent Mid-West Peninsular Malaysia, Terengganu to represent East Peninsular Malaysia, and Lido, Johor to represent South Peninsular Malaysia. Noise level measurements and analysis for the location were based on the background noise and the characterization of industrial noise. The results from comparative study indicated that the equivalent noise level for East Malaysia is the lowest compare to the highest equivalent level produced at South Peninsular Malaysia. The results for day time and night time also indicate that equivalent noise level is much lower at East Malaysia compare to any places at Peninsular Malaysia. These data are very useful to be used as reference and guideline for future regulations on noise limit to be implemented for urban areas in Malaysia.
