China News Service, May 26th. The Ministry of Ecology and Environment held a regular press conference in May on the 26th. Jiang Huohua, deputy director of the Ecological Environment Monitoring Department, introduced at the meeting that at present, 324 cities at the prefecture level and above have carried out noise monitoring. , a total of 76,273 monitoring points have been set up.
In 2021, 95.4% of the various functional zones in the 324 prefecture-level and above cities will meet the standards during the day and 82.9% at night.
A reporter asked at the meeting: The Law on the Prevention and Control of Noise Pollution will come into force on June 5. What is the current state of noise monitoring sites in my country?
How can the public know if the noise levels around them are excessive?
In this regard, Jiang Huohua said, "The so-called noise, in simple terms, is the sound that interferes with our work, study and life, the sound that people do not need. The college entrance examination is approaching, and everyone is highly concerned about the noise problem. The newly revised Noise Pollution Prevention and Control Law proposes noise monitoring. It is a clear requirement that we organize and carry out national acoustic environment quality monitoring, promote the automation of noise monitoring, and release national acoustic environment quality information in a unified manner. In 2021, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council's opinions on in-depth combat of pollution prevention and control require that by 2025, local Level and above cities have fully realized automatic monitoring of the acoustic environment quality of functional areas, and the national acoustic environment functional area compliance rate at night has reached 85%.”
Jiang Huohua revealed that at present, 324 cities at the prefecture level and above have carried out noise monitoring, and a total of 76,273 monitoring points have been set up.
Among them, there are 3,521 monitoring points used to reflect the acoustic environment quality of various functional areas of the city, 51,046 regional acoustic environment monitoring points used to evaluate the overall level of the urban environmental noise, and 51,046 monitoring points used to reflect the road traffic noise level. 21706.
In 2021, 312 acoustic environment monitoring points in 21 cities across the country will be automatically monitored and connected to the country.
Jiang Huohua said that in order to facilitate the public to understand the status of the acoustic environment, at present, the country, provinces and most prefecture-level and above cities have published relevant content on the quality of the acoustic environment in the bulletin on the status of the ecological environment. The overall situation of the city can also be checked by checking the monitoring results of the functional areas to know whether the acoustic environment quality of the specific functional areas of the city meets the standards.
In 2021, 95.4% of the various functional zones in the 324 prefecture-level and above cities will meet the standard during the day and 82.9% at night.
The average equivalent sound level of the sound environment in the daytime area is 54.1 decibels; the average equivalent sound level of the road traffic sound environment in the daytime is 66.5 decibels.
Jiang Huohua also said that in the next step, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment will conscientiously implement the Law on the Prevention and Control of Noise Pollution, establish and improve the noise monitoring system, improve the noise monitoring network, study and issue relevant documents on strengthening noise monitoring, and promote the construction of automatic monitoring capabilities for the acoustic environment in functional areas. , to further increase the disclosure of noise monitoring information, and strive to satisfy the public's right to know information on the quality of the acoustic environment.Keywords:
