VAN NUYS AIRPORT RESIDENTIAL SOUNDPROOFING
Los Angeles World Airports, working closely with local Council offices, implemented an Airport Residential Soundproofing Program (RSP) for aircraft noise impacted areas in the City of Los Angeles, around Van Nuys Airport.
The program covered residential buildings in areas of the City with a recorded Community Noise Equivalent Level (CNEL) of 65 decibels (dB) and higher as shown on the third quarter of 1998 noise contour map produced by Los Angeles World Airports.
DURATION OF THE RESIDENTIAL SOUNDPROOFING PROGRAM
The Residential soundproofing program began implementation of the first soundproofing project around Van Nuys Airport in 2001. At that time, LAWA opened a community office, which remained open to the public until 2007. Since the start of the program, LAWA soundproofed 779 residential dwelling units.
At this time, soundproofing is not offered for Van Nuys residences. LAWA understands there may still be some homeowners who feel that their homes are impacted by aircraft noise. If you would like to file a complaint about aircraft noise, you may contact Noise Management by calling the dedicated 24-hour number listed below:
