The Washington State Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation (IAC) has been asked by the State legislature to develop recommendations for the 2007 legislative session to improve the control of ORV noise in Washington State. The purpose of this study is to evaluate various approaches available for addressing ORV noise and to make recommendations to improve the control of ORV noise.
The IAC is asking for your input on recommended options for addressing ORV noise. There are two basic techniques for controlling ORV sound: (1) limit it at source and/or (2) limit the amount of sound that reaches neighboring properties. The IAC is looking at actions that can be taken using both techniques, but they need your help. There is a potential for changing noise rules at both the state and the local jurisdiction levels, and an online survey provides questions which address both possibilities.
The survey must be completed by November 6th.
