Are you bothered by the dust, noise, or idling-truck emissions from nearby houses under construction? Home improvements and new construction projects are a reality when you live in such a desirable neighborhood. Find out the rules and how to report violations. Note that generators, even for temporary power outages, must comply with county noise limits. See the new section, Residential Construction Tips, under “Huntington Terrace”. Thanks to EPA consultant and resident Vera Ashworth for her research in this area.
