Noise Monitoring

The noise impact area at the Airport is 5.52 acres of incompatible land.

The noise impact area has shrunk more than 98% since the Authority acquired the Airport in 1978.

The decrease in the noise impact area, despite increases in air traffic, is due to:

  • The Authority’s aggressive acoustical treatment program.
  • The Authority’s enforcement of its Noise Rules.
  • The airlines’ operation of quieter aircraft.
  • The airlines’ compliance with the Authority’s voluntary curfew.
