Take notice that the Department in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act, N.J.S.A. 52:14C-4.10, is proposing substantial changes to the Noise Control rules at N.J.A.C. 7:29, based on a comment received on the proposal to readopt the Noise Control Rules, N.J.A.C. 7:29, with amendments published in the New Jersey Register on December 20, 2010 (42 N.J.R. 3024(a)).  The public comment period on the underlying proposal closed on February 18, 2011.  The proposed substantial changes amend N.J.A.C. 7:29-1.2, Industrial, commercial, or community service facilities, to eliminate industrial facilities as a receptor for noise.  As part of this change, the Department is proposing to add a new definition of electricity generation, change the definitions of community service facility and industrial facility, and delete the definition of public service facility at N.J.A.C. 7:29-1.1.  The Department is also proposing to change N.J.A.C. 7:29-1.5, Exceptions, to remove references to public service facility.

The notice is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated December 19, 2011.  A copy of the notice can be viewed or downloaded from the Department's website at http://www.nj.gov/dep/rules/proposals/121911a.pdf, or a copy can be obtained from Rule Manager David Triggs by calling (609) 984-0272.
