  LARKHURST – Expect to hear loud noises for the next two weeks as Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JBMDL) prepares for nighttime testing.

  The JBMDL released a statement warning residents that the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Lakehurst is conducting aircraft acoustic tests now through October 3.

  These tests will occur in the evening in order to “achieve the most favorable acoustic conditions when winds are typically lower.”

  In addition, the noise calendar posted for the month of September shows abundant noise until to end of the month. During this time, heavy crew weapons training will consist of firing Howitzers, mortars and cratering charges.

  Noise levels are subject to change without notice due to training requirements and weather, JBMDL said.
