Noise pollution is a rising issue in urban soundscapes worldwide. Our project aided the Junta de Calidad Ambiental (JCA) in advancing the completion of a noise action plan to reduce noise pollution in San Juan. To accomplish this, we studied the urban soundscape through sound level analysis to investigate temporal variability. We also surveyed residents to comprehend the public perceptions of sound. Additionally, we examined noise regulations to determine the degree of their alignment with public perceptions. Ultimately, we developed a basis of research from which future projects in urban soundscape and noise pollution can sample.
