Noise Pollution in the Quiet Woods

Ear plugs are the only thing keeping us calm. The reason we live out here is for the peace and quiet. I think that is being seriously challenged by this project. I was prepared to be disturbed during the day of digging, but I hadn't braced for a 24hr, 7 day a week until the project is over noise challenge. They are saying 2 months to complete this bridge. If any of you know a "legal" solution to this problem I would sure like to hear about it. I am wondering if a noise baffle can be put up around the pump. This is the first time since we have lived here being away from the house is more peaceful. :(  Mountain girl, Paula, logging out.

Have you investigated an "electric motor driven pump". Who pays for the electrical cost ? It might be worth the cost....can't believe a large motor is required.

They don't have electric pump. But are looking into a quieter one.

Tell them to "turn it off"....we can hear the darn thing running in Colorado!
