  LAKEHURST – Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JBMDL) have released their monthly “Noise Level Calendar” for the month of May. So if you hear a loud boom, it’s the soldiers training at the base.

  Every month, JBMDL releases their “Noise Level Calendar” so residents know when to expect mild or severe noise. This is to deter calls to local 911 dispatchers. The calendar is labeled with three different levels of noise: slight noise, moderate noise and abundant noise.

  Almost the entire month of May is scheduled for “moderate noise.” A key date to note is May 26, which is scheduled for “high noise.”

  Additionally, May 18 and 20 are scheduled for “low noise.”

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