Abstract
The report presents the results of an investigation conducted at Kingston, Ontario to determine the effect of a new car-ferry service upon ambient noise levels in the two Canadian Forces Colleges housed in nearby Fort Frontenac. By means of questionnaires and computed Noise Pollution Levels, it was concluded that annoyance and sleep disturbance were a problem in quarters close to the ferry dock. It is recommended that the ferry should not sound its horn prior to departure from its dock next to Fort Frontenac. This, alone, would eliminate the most serious source of annoyance and disturbance. Also, the Fort Frontenac Library, and rooms in the Bradstreet Block with windows facing east and south, should be fitted with sealed, double-glazed, noise-attenuating windows, and be equipped with air-conditioning.
