SEAlicense-BEQUIETFrom his “BE QUIET” license plate to his email signature statement, “Neighbors are far better acoustic analyzers for determining the quality of their life versus any acoustic instrument left unattended by an expert,” Stephen Ambrose has been a champion. His quest has been to safeguard the health and well-being of the public from unwanted noise. As an acoustician, he has addressed noise threats–from manufacturing plants to commercial turbines. His expertise led the MassDEP to invite him to serve on the WNTAG panel.

  • Noise measurements are the financial responsibility of the project owner and shall be independently performed by a qualified professional

  • Noise measurement shall prevail versus noise predictions.
