At the January 21st, 2016 meeting of the Board of Health it was voted unanimously to repeal the "Torrington Area Health District Noise Control Regulation" Complaints of excessive noise can be made to the TAHD and each will be evaluated and acted upon through the use of other existing regulations and Statutes.
Please understand that nuisance types of noise such as licensed motor vehicles (including motorcycles), chain saws, lawn mowers and all-terrain vehicles are not specifically regulated. These are considered temporary noises that eventually resolve themselves. Furthermore, neither the TAHD nor the State of Connecticut regulate noise generated by the otherwise lawful discharge of firearms. The TAHD will assist residents of the member towns with permanent stationary sources of noise that can be measured, controlled and reduced using modern acoustical engineering.
