Industrial noise, often exceeding the acceptable decibel level of the City's Noise Ordinance, at the Sewerage & Water Board's Carrollton plant comes from turbines and the diesel-powered generators (EMDs). During rain and storm events, the noise continues sometimes for several days and nights. The air quality is also affected. Nearby residents have no control over this.

The Carrollton-Riverbend Neighborhood Association is gathering information and opinions about this from residents. We appreciate your help! (Our blog is at crna-nola.org.)
