§ 119.8. Enforcement.

 (a.) An officer authorized to enforce this chapter who has reason to believe that a motorboat is being operated in excess of the noise levels established in this chapter may direct the operator of the motorboat to submit the motorboat to an onsite test to measure noise levels. If the motorboat exceeds the decibel levels established by this chapter, the officer may direct the operator to take immediate and reasonable measures to correct the violation, including returning the motorboat to a mooring and keeping the motorboat at the mooring until the violation is corrected or ceases.

 (b.) Any law enforcement officer who conducts motorboat noise level tests as provided in this chapter shall be qualified in motorboat noise testing by the Commission. These qualifications shall include but are not limited to the selection of the measurement site, and the calibration and use of noise testing equipment.

 (c.) Measurements for either a Stationary or Pass-by Test will be made by a sound level meter which satisfies ANSI-S 1.4-1983, Type 2 or equivalent.
