In response to continuing efforts to help slow the spread of COVID-19, please be advised that the City of Oshawa has cancelled the workshops related to the development of the draft 2020-2024 Airport Business Plan. These workshops will be rescheduled for a later date.

The workshops will include updates on airport noise, flight training and air quality and are an opportunity for participants to hear answers and further discuss matters related to questions raised at the Town Hall.

The feedback and information collected during the small group workshops will be considered in the development of the draft 2020-2024 Airport Business Plan, which is anticipated to be presented to Development Services Committee later this year.

    I am interested to know where we stand with the monitoring timeline? Has the sampling taken place as per the plan? When should we see results provided?

    Dave N asked about 2 months ago

    The air and noise quality study with sites located on the airport was undertaken in July and August of 2019 and some preliminary findings of the study will be released at the business plan working group meetings when they resume.   

    There is a second air and noise study scheduled to take place in July and August of this year with sensors installed in the community.   July and August has been selected because they are typically the airports busiest months.   

    We are currently looking into the impacts of the Covid restriction on the 2020 study and further information will be available as it becomes available.

    I am interested in the current study parameters regarding noise assessment. I understand meters are placed at the end of runways. Is the information gathered to be in decibels, or is it just a comparison with other similar community airports? Which would not be of any benefit to those of us living near this one. Are meters to be placed in areas where residents have expressed concern about their quality of life and devaluation of their property?

    Thank you for your questions.

    The proposal and details for the air quality and noise study were presented to the Development Services Committee and approved by City Council on June 24, 2019 under report DS-19-128. The noise information has been recorded using Equivalent Sound Level (LEQ) which is an energy-average sound level taken over a specified period of time. It represents the average sound pressure encountered for the period. The time period is often added as a suffix to the label (e.g., LEQ (24) for the 24-hour equivalent sound level). An LEQ value expressed in dBA is a good, single value descriptor of noise.

    The noise monitoring equipment has been placed just past the threshold of each of the 4 runway thresholds at the recommendation of the consultant as these location will represent the highest level of noise impact. 

    Data collected from the noise study will be compared to environmental conditions and aircraft movement data to identify trends in noise relating to volume, duration, movement type and aircraft type. This will assist in the potential development of new noise and traffic management strategies targeted to help reduce the impact of aircraft noise on surrounding neighbourhoods.

    We invite you to view the full noise study details are found within the RWDI proposal which is attached to the report.
