In addition to the MAA’s 24 permanent noise monitors located throughout the communities surrounding BWI Marshall Airport, the MAA provides homeowners the opportunity to request a temporary noise monitor at their residence. Upon written agreement, and provided your residence meets the technical requirements, the MAA will set up a temporary noise monitor for a period of two weeks, and compile a detailed technical report upon conclusion. The final report will provide aircraft and community noise levels, the percentage of east/west operations, and general information about noise measurements and airport operations.
If you are interested, please submit your portable noise monitoring application online. Should you need alternate arrangements to access the form, please contact the Noise Section.
