  • 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.
