UNC to explore
solutions to noise
at power plant
By Brendan Smith
A University official told neighbors
of the Cameron Avenue power plant
Wednesday night that the University
would investigate an expert's sugges
tions for reducing noise levels.
But the cost of these improvements
could be a stumbling block, said Tom
Grisham, University director of special
"It's simply a question of financing,
making sure we have the money,"
Grisham said. "We know what the con
cepts are; we're not positive of thecost."
The University hired a sound engi
neer who reported his findings last night
to the Power Plant Neighbors, a group
of residents organized to keep the Uni
versity aware of their complaints.
John Stewart, the owner of Noise
Control Services, reported the findings
of his two-month study of noise levels
in the power plant area.
Stewart's study has identified spe
cific sources of noise pollution, and
Grisham said the University was trying
to comply with the town's noise ordi
nance by adopting some of Stewart's

Students at a Black Student Move
ment meeting Wednesday emotionally
criticized a response from Donald
Boulton, vice chancellor for student
affairs. Some told Boulton, who at
tended the meeting, that his response
was incomplete and exhibited racism.
Several coalition members were no
ticeably upset and called for Boulton to
leave the meeting so he would not hear
any new strategies of the group. Others
tended the meeting, said, "If you can do
that, you'll be getting Christmas cards
from people you don't know."
Grisham said he needed to meet with
Ben Tuchi, University vice chancellor
for business and finance, to see what
funds were available for the renova
tions. Stewart said the cost of the improve
ments could not be estimated because
vendors had to be contacted. New equip
ment would have to meet the design
specifications of the plant's machinery,
"It really depends on how compat
ible existing (noise reduction) systems
are with the machines in use," he said.
If the machinery is not compatible, it
may need to be replaced, Stewart said.
Town noise ordinances require that
daytime noise levels not exceed 60 deci
bels and that nighttime levels not ex
ceed 50 decibels.
While the plant nearly meets the day
time level, it does "not even come close"
to complying with the lower nighttime
level, Stewart said.
"If you go from 50 (decibels) to 60,
that's perceived as about 10 times as
much noise," Stewart said.
Capt. Gregg Jarvies of the Chapel
Hill Police Department said they had
been receiving about three or four com
plaints a week about noise from the
plant. During the past two weeks, noise
readings taken by police ranged from
55 to 68 decibels.
Even though the plant violates the
town noise ordinance, it is exempted
because noise from emergency pressure-release
valves is allowed by the
ordinance, Jarvies said.
The PPN will meet with officials
next month to see what advances have
been made in meeting the recommen
dations. needed to concentrate on increasing the
pool of minority applicants.
"Part of our thing is to remind the
faculty that we need to have continued
good-faith efforts to increase the pool
of black faculty members," he said.
Robert Cannon, University affirma
tive action officer, said recruitment ef
forts have not failed entirely. Recruit
ment success depends on the pool of
possible applicants, and the pool for
many jobs is limited, he said.
"(Our recruitment effort) certainly
hasn't been a great success, but it hasn't
been acomplete failure," he said. "When
