The Updated Noise Exposure Tables include the calculated noise exposure level (DNL) in each census block for each of the proposed Airspace Redesign Alternatives including the Preferred Alternative and the Preferred Alternative with mitigation. These Tables also reflect minor changes in the noise analysis methodology. Therefore, noise exposure levels previously published may not exactly match those found in the Updated Noise Exposure Tables. For more information regarding the minor changes in the noise analysis methodology please refer to the Noise Mitigation Report (PDF).
How to Use the Noise Exposure Tables
To find the noise levels in your specific area you need to know your census tract and census block number. This information may be found on the U.S. Census Bureau American Factfinder website.
- Go to the U.S. Census Bureau American FactFinder website
- Make sure Census 2000 appears in the box under “Select a year and program”.
- Type your address in the appropriate boxes and clicking Go.
- In the last box, the census tract and block are identified for a particular address.
- Once you have identified a particular census tract and block, you can use the Noise Exposure Tables below to find the associated calculated noise exposure. The tables are split up by state and county. Noise was calculated for all populated census blocks in the study area. Therefore, not all counties within each state are listed.
