The City and County of Broomfield signed a contract on February 21, 2019, with Vibra-Tech to provide continuous noise monitoring at new oil and gas sites. Initially, they will be deployed at the Interchange and Livingston pads in early March, prior to the start of drilling operations. Other stations will be deployed at the other sites as drilling operations get closer. All of the monitoring stations will be able to monitor for dBA and dBC. An alert system will also be established so that Broomfield staff are notified when a certain noise threshold is reached so that it can be investigated. In addition, noise 'spikes' are recorded so that the recording can be evaluated to determine the source of the noise (e.g., airplane, birds, etc.). Finally, the baseline noise monitoring reports will be sent to Vibra-Tech this afternoon for them to review and provide any input they may have.
