Construction businesses that cannot comply with the noise mitigation rules described in Local Law 113, linked below under Additional Information, must file an Alternative Noise Mitigation Plan (ANMP) with the DEP. The ANMP should be filed before construction activities take place. The approved ANMP should be posted at the construction site. DEP provides a “contact page” that should be posted on the outside of the site to inform inspectors of the plan’s location if it is not feasible to post the plan in a readily accessible location.
Failure to comply with these requirements might result in significant financial penalties.
