Air and Noise pollution control analyisis in construction
Raj shekhar singh,  Anupam kumar Gautam
Major environmental issues related to ongoing construction industry like air emission and Noise pollution have been arrised and impacted on the construction workers and also surroundings. Particulates (dust) are generated from various activities of construction sites excavation, drilling, bulk material transportation, loading and unloading; open-air material storage, concrete and mortar making; cut and fill operations; and movement of equipment and but not limited to. These major activities have significant impacts of existing environment. Dust pollution can cause numerous health issues among construction workers and many studies have dealt with this problem. In addition, safety, comfort and the morale of workers is affected by dust pollution. Dust also creates problems with the neighborhood and is considered to be a nuisance . Many construction procedures, such as drilling and grinding, can produce high level of particulates that can be inhaled into lung, and consequently lead to physical diseases [4,5].
Considering the above situation the present work focuses on the monitoring of the different sources of Particulate matter & Noise generation in different areas using the samplers. Ambient air monitoring was conducted from March 2017 to February 2018 at an averaging period of 24 hour and monthly basis to derive the particulate matter generation behaviour in and around the sites. Seasonal variation on ambient air quality data have been noticed quite markedly. It is found that the monitored particulate matter concentrations thus obtained were not within the prescribed limits of NAAQS 2009. On the basis of these findings suitable mitigation and environmental plans can be devised for the sensitive areas. Ambient Noise have also been affected, the results were analyzed & compared with baseline survey.
