The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has established noise regulations that set community noise exposure criteria.

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has adopted the Noise Control Regulation, 310 CMR 7.10, under the authority of M.G.L. Chapter 111, Section 142B and 142D. The Noise Control Regulation is used to limit the sound impact of new stationary sources and to respond to complaints of certain excessive sound.

310 CMR 7.10

Individual communities can also establish noise regulations through community by-laws and
some local communities have additional noise regulations.  Inquire at the local town hall, the clerk or manager's office, to see if local noise regulations exist.
