International Airport (PTK).                   The study will update the analysis of
existing aircraft and background noise levels on airport neighbors and
vicinity land uses and reflect future conditions with continued
implementation of previously recommended noise abatement and land use
strategies to minimize the off-airport noise impact.                        The study will
result in both existing and future Noise Exposure Maps, which will meet
the requirements of Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 150.


Since the completion of the Oakland County International Airport Part 150
Noise Compatibility Study, there have been many changes in the aviation
industry.        Operation levels and aircraft types have c,hanged significantly
since the completion of the previous study.                      Additionally, the past study
looked five        (5) years into the future from the completion of the previous
study - that mark has been reached.                      The NEM update will include an
estimate of noise levels five (5) years from now.


These elements are outlined in the following Scope of Services.

during previous planning. These forecasts will be updated for use during
noise modeling. The updated forecasts will be compared with the TAF
 (Terminal Area Forecasts) and any regional forecasts for consistency, and
changes made as necessary.                 The forecasts will be organized into
appropriate categories to enable preparation of the Integrated Noise Model
and will reflect both the short term (five year) and long term (twenty
year) time frames.             FAA approval of the forecasts will be necessary prior
to completing noise modeling.

This task will be conducted by the Contractor with input from the County.


Product: Review and updating of operations forecasts for Oakland County
International Airport.


Element Five. Noise Measurements

TaskS.1. Program Design
Description: This task includes the design of the noise measurement program at
PTK using the information and data collected or derived under previous
tasks.      PTK does not have a permanent noise monitoring system.                          Although
noise measurements are not required by FAR Part 150, the proposed noise
measurement program presented within this Element is being conducted to
enable public confidence in the results of the noise contours.


Noise measurements will be obtained to increase the confidence in the
noise models to be used in the study.                       A major goal of these measurements
will be to develop noise and performance data for the various aircraft
operating at PTK. Attention will be given to single event noise levels
for direct correlation with specific aircraft flight data collected from
FAA radar flight information.                   Noise measurements can be used to verify
the applicability of INM input parameters and, if warranted, to adjust

                                                                  ~   The Barnard Dunkelnerg & Company Team


such input parameters regarding actual flight characteristics of aircraft
using the Airport.             Adjustments to the INM model will only be those that
are permitted by the FAA.


Product: The design of the noise monitoring program will be outlined in a
document that describes the purposes and goals of the program.  The
consulting team will work with the Airport administration to develop the
noise measurement program design prior to the start of the measurements.


Task 5.2. Noise MonHoring SHe Selection
Description: Based upon the goals of the noise-monitoring program,                     the location
and number of measurement sites will be identified. Sites may include
locations within the communities, sites exposed to ground noise sources,
and additional sites located along the primary flight paths within the
study area.         Noise monitoring sites will be selected based upon technical
suitability as well as locations of public interest.                      Data used in the
selection of the noise monitoring sites includes complaint history, land
use patterns, flight tracks and distribution of the sites representatively
around the Airport.             The measurement program will include the following
types of measurement sites:

      ~   Long-term aircraft and non-aircraft noise measurement sites
      ~   Short-term aircraft and non-aircraft noise measurement sites

Product: The establishment of noise monitoring sites,                 at ten (10) long-term
locations and ten (10) short-term locations.


Task 5.3. Conduct Noise Monitoring
Description: Wi thin the task,         noise measurements will be conducted at each of
the noise monitoring locations identified in the previous tasks.                             The
measurement procedures and the length of time each site is measured are
described in the following paragraphs.


Long Term Measurement Sites. Measurements at these locations include locating the
noise monitors in semi-permanent sites for a ten-day period.                          These
measurements will include DNL, hourly LEQ, Time Above noise levels (TAB5,
TA75 and TA65) , single event (SEL, Lmax and duration), and ambient
descriptors (L1, L10, L50, L90, L99). The noise monitors to be used in
the measurements continuously record the one-second noise data that can be
later analyzed to compute the noise metric of interest.                       These
measurements will be A-weighted measurements.                    Simultaneous measurements

                                                                    "'" The Barnard flunkeloerg 8, Company Team


will be conducted with at least five monitors at anyone time.                                A total of
10 long-term measurement sites are proposed.


Short·Term Measurement Sites. Ten      (10) sites are proposed for the measurement. of
short-term aircraft and non-aircraft noise levels.                       The purpose of these
sites is to provide short-term measurement results at representative
locations around the Airport.  An Engineer/Technician will also identify
the aircraft that is causing the noise event. Each site will be measured
on three different occasions for approximately a total duration of eight
(8) hours. Acoustical measurements will be recorded in field measurement
logs for later analysis, and will be coordinated with aircraft operations
(occurrence, runway utilization, type and special comments).


The noise monitoring program will utilize ANSI Type 1 noise monitoring
instrumentation.            The noise monitoring will be calibrated before and after
each measurement with a calibrator traceable to the national bureau of
standards.         Operators of the equipment will record relevant information
observed during the measurement periods for inclusion in a report and use
in correlation with FAA radar data and with known aircraft activity. To
the extent practicable, all measurements will be conducted within impacted
residential areas.             In each case, the ambient levels without aircraft
activity will also be recorded.

The Contractor will be responsible for the daily coordination of this task
between landowners, Airport staff, and Contractor personnel.                              The
Contractor will provide primary monitoring equipment and be responsible
for its placement, operation, and security.                      Airport staff will review the
proposed measurement site locations, suggest changes as appropriate, and
coordinate permission to measure at selected location.


Product: Noise measurements will be completed at the locations and duration
of measurements identified in the above tasks description.


Task 5.4. Flight Track and Radar Data Evaluation

Description: To correlate flight activities with measured noise events and to
obtain accurate flight track and performance profile data, FAA radar
digital data requested will be collected for periods of time which are
representative of various operational configurations of the Airport.
Flight track data will be obtained from the FAA's radar system to extract
appropriate information on time, velocities, flight tracks, altitude
