Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The city of Minneapolis has a law protecting the quietude in various land use areas, including residential areas. In this legal action, plaintiff asserted that the Metropolitan Airports Commission was adversely and significantly affecting the quietude of the residents in the 60-65 DNL zone and that a 5-dB noise insulation package in homes in that zone would ameliorate the situation. There were four tasks for plaintiff's expert witnesses; (1) Define quietude; (2) Show that without the airport quietude existed in the 60-65 DNL zone; (3) Quantify the impacts including annoyance, speech interference, and sleep disturbance; and (4) Quantify the benefits of a 5-dB noise insulation package. The results were a negotiated settlement for $128 million.
