Evaluation of Noise Pollution Due to Electric Generators in the University of Maiduguri Campus
Y. B. Dibal, D. I. Malgwi, M. Maina
Noise pollution due to Electric Generators in the University of Maiduguri Campus has been evaluated using an Integrated Sound pressures Meter Model No S-01 for twenty (20) locations within the campus. The results obtained showed that in the case of average noise levels at same distance for the entire Campus, Aisha hostel has the highest noise level of 115 dB (A) and Student centre has the lowest noise level of 98 dB (A). On the other hand, results of noise level variations with distance for different locations within the campus revealed that the minimum safest distance at which electric Generators could be located is 260m away which will serve as a solution to the exposure of excess noise level. The implication of these exceeded limits is the health damaging effects on peoples hearing, mental and comfort. The use of sound-proof generator houses, solar and other renewable energy as an alternative source of energy and the improvement of maintenance culture of existing installed generators are recommended to alleviate and/or reduce rate of noise pollution exposure in the University of Maiduguri campus.
