Introduction and Purpose: Noise pollution is one of the important environmental problems that has been on a growing trend in the recent years. This study was conducted to evaluate the level of noise pollution in Omidiyeh city, Iran. Methods: Testo 815 sound level meter was employed to quantify the sound pressure level (SPL). The measurements were conducted during 7-9 am, 12- 14 am, and 19-21 pm, at three locations (one station in each of commercial, residential, and commercial-residential areas), and the results were compared with the standard level of noise pollution. Results: The results indicated that the SPL at all the specified times and areas were higher than the standard level. The mean SPL in commercial, residential, and commercial-residential areas were 72.86, 67.36, and 61.71 dB, respectively, which were 7.86, 7.36, and 6.71 dB higher than the standards of noise in the open air. Conclusion: This study showed that the SPL was higher than standard level, Therefor new approaches should be implemented to reduce the level of noise pollution
