MSP Aircraft Noise Analysis for 2016 is Now Available

Each year, the MAC reports aircraft noise exposure associated with operations at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) and uses the results to determine homeowner eligibility for the MAC's Noise Mitigation Program. To qualify for mitigation, a home must fall within a higher impact area for three consecutive years.  

The report, called the MSP Annual Noise Contour Report, details the development inputs for aircraft noise exposure contours that represent the geographical areas exposed to aircraft noise levels of 60 dB DNL and greater surrounding MSP.

The 2016 Annual Noise Contour Report is available now on the MAC Noise Program Office website here:  2016 MSP Annual Noise Contour Report.

Additionally, address lists of the eligible homes are provided here: Do I Qualify?

The report concluded that a total of 286 single-family homes are eligible for mitigation in 2018. The eligible blocks are shown in blue in the graphic below. MAC will begin reaching out to these eligible homeowners in late 2017 to begin project orientation.

The MAC is also actively initiating mitigation projects for homes that qualified last year. These homes are shown in green on the graphic below.
