The Martin State Airport (MTN) Noise Zone was established in 1977 in response to the 1974 Maryland Environmental Noise Act. This act requires the Maryland Aviation Administration (MAA) to adopt an Airport Noise Zone to prevent further incompatible land development around Martin State Airport and to minimize the impact of aircraft noise on people living near the airport.
The noise environment around an airport is described by contours of equal noise exposure, representing the noise that occurs during an average 24-hour day, in terms of the Day-Night Average Sound Level (DNL, Ldn).
The MAA routinely conducts airport-related noise sampling at selected locations around MTN, advising the surrounding communities of any significant changes through Neighbors' Committee Meetings and public meetings when the Airport Noise Zone is being updated.
