The State of New Jersey has established noise regulations that set community noise exposure criteria.

State of New Jersey has promulgated the New Jersey Noise Control Statue - N.J.A.C. 7:29.  This regulation is used to limit the sound impact of new stationary sources and to respond to complaints of excessive sound.  The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) also provides assistance to local communities in the development of ordinances and programs.

N.J.A.C. 7:29

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