The state government has imposed a 500,000 fine on those who flout the directive.
General manager, Lagos State Environment Protection Agency (LASEPA), Adebola Shabi, made this known on Monday.
He said the decision on noise pollution was necessitated by petitions made by residents who complained about the frequent disturbance from the bars, clubhouses and religious houses.
The government also warned religious houses to make use of sound proof in order to reduce the effect of the noise generated in the areas where they are situated.
He also said that most households in Lagos were ignorantly drinking water already contaminated by petrochemical substances through the underground water.
He said that based on the research recently conducted in the state’s agency, the Alimosho area recorded the highest contaminated water by petrochemical substance.
Shabi warned petrol stations in the state to install a monitoring well in their filling stations or face serious sanction.
He said that the state would not fold its arms and allow residents continue to consume what could lead to cancer.
