Noise Contour Maps
The following Airport Impact Area maps show the noise contours for VNY and the affected land uses. These contours are established by modeling annual operations at the airport and adjusting the levels based on actual noise measurement data for that time period. Each 4th Quarter map is based on calendar year information for the respective year. The contours shown are measured in CNEL (Community Noise Equivalent Level) for the 65dB and 70dB noise levels. These maps will be updated quarterly during the current year as they become available.
LAWA is in the process of replacing the entire noise monitoring system and, unfortunately, the production of the quarterly noise contour maps have been delayed due to staff time constraints because of this project, as well as system issues encountered when incorporating and transitioning to the new noise monitoring system. Noise Management anticipates that the noise contour maps for 2010 will be available and posted on this web site later this year.
