NOISE MONITORING SYSTEM

The airport has a new Airport Noise and Operations Monitoring System (ANOMS) with fourteen noise monitors permanently placed in locations throughout Washoe County. Portable noise monitors will supplement the fixed monitors and provide backup for maintenance. The new ANOMS monitors aircraft operations including flight tracks, runway use, and activity levels while monitoring aircraft generated noise levels and automating noise contour development. For more information please contact Lissa Butterfield, Interim Manager of Airport Noise Program, at noise.abatement@renoairport.com.
