Merv Griffin Estate Noise Monitoring


Meridian Consultants conducted a noise monitoring survey for Bounce and the City of La Quinta during an event at the Merv Griffin Estate. A Noise Monitoring Report was prepared by Meridian Consultants based on the findings of the noise monitoring survey and provided overall sound data during the event.

Meridian Consultants has the capability to evaluate noise sources associated with a range of projects, from special events to spectator sports facilities, land development, and vehicle traffic. All measurements are taken in accordance with accepted methodologies such as ISO or ASTM, using Type I/II integrating sound level meters. Evaluations are made in reference to community planning standards, such as local noise control ordinances and the California Model Community Noise Control Ordinance, and are based on accepted community noise equivalent level/day-night average sound level (CNEL/Ldn) measurement methodology.

Meridian Consultants utilizes computer models to predict noise impacts from increased traffic volumes or other activities associated with proposed land uses. Anticipated noise levels are projected with respect to parcel boundaries or planimetric features and in accordance with applicable regulations or client objectives. Predictive studies may address a variety of variables, such as traffic volumes, vehicle mix, stationary source operation patterns, topographic conditions, and mitigation options.
