The refinery is located in the city of Lévis with access to St Lawrence river. Built in the late 60s on predominantly rural land, several residential and commercial properties were developed, and environmental issues brought light on the importance of industrial noise management.

Different examples of sound-emitting operations are presented to demonstrate both application of sound survey program and the mitigation actions implemented. Also demonstrated is the processes of sound data management and the communication strategy in place to report the environmental performance and keep the community informed about all the efforts put in place to minimize the impact of operations in the neighborhood.
