FAR Part 150 Noise and Land Use / Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Air Quality Analysis

LaGuardia Airport | Queens, NY

CMT’s environmental team has provided various environmental services for LaGuardia Airport (LGA).

CMT Environmental Scientists are currently providing technical analysis for the first-ever FAR Part 150 Aircraft Noise Study for LGA. To date, CMT has prepared the existing 2016 and future 2021 DNL noise contours and a Noise Exposure Maps (NEM) Report as well as presented technical noise information to the Study’s Technical Advisory Committee.

The environmental team has also prepared emissions inventories and performed air quality analyses in support of the development of a new Airtrain connecting LGA to several nearby locations. Our air quality experts developed emissions inventories for construction activities using the Airport Construction Emissions Inventory Tool (ACEIT) for equipment types and activity levels. This data was combined with emission factors from Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Motor Vehicle Emissions Simulator (MOVES). Emissions reduction benefits associated with future implementation and operation of the Airtrain were also analyzed.
