This paper presents the results obtained from an environmental noise measurement at a selected location in Malaysia in order to establish the impact of noise to human at residential area. The measurement site was situated less than three kilometers from the nearest airport and any major activities can be expected to be heard. The noise measurement was carried out for 24 hours monitoring for 30 days by using integrated B&K SLM equipments to obtain the equivalent sound level (Leq), L10 and L90 so that the exposure of noise to community can be assessed. Maximum sound level (Lmax) and sound exposure level have been measured as specified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for aviation noise assessment. The results revealed that the overall noise level exceeded the requirement of standard which is stated at 65dBA.These finding are very useful to be used as reference and guideline for future regulations on noise limit to be implemented for urban areas in Malaysia not only to human but also for wildlife and building structure.
