Kalamazoo to investigate noisy pump in Douglass Neighborhood
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - In Kalamazoo, city leaders plan to investigate the noise level coming from a pump station that some in the area say is disrupting their neighborhood.
The city held a meeting Wednesday night so those in the Douglass Neighborhood could voice their concerns.
Some residents say the noise and vibrations from the pump station are a nuisance. Some even say it's affecting their health, claiming it's too loud to sleep.
"I've been there for 22 years and it's gotten bad in the last five or six because the pump station is servicing a larger area and instead of running intermittently. They run all the time. So I don't get a break and same with my neighbors," said Arlene Larson.
City leaders are planning to conduct studies to see if the pump is making the noise or if it's due to improper acoustics.
