(A) If the measurements of sound are made with a sound level meter, it shall be an instrument in good operating condition, meeting the requirements of a Type I or Type II meter, as specified by A.N.S.I. Standard 1.4-1971. For purposes of this section, a sound level meter shall contain at least an A-weighted scale and both fast and slow meter response capability.
(B) If the measurements are made with other instruments, the procedure shall be carried out in such a manner that the overall accuracy is at least that called for in A.N.S.I. Standard 1.4-1971 for Type II instruments.
(C) When the location or distance prescribed in this subchapter for measurement of sound is impractical or would provide misleading or inaccurate results, measurements may be taken at other locations or distances using appropriate correction factors specified in this subchapter.
(D) Procedures and tests required by this subchapter and not specified herein shall be placed on file with the Town Clerk.
