GAO was requested to review an airport authority's compliance with the noise provision of its grant agreement with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The noise provision stated that, to the extent feasible, the authority should not increase the noise levels and/or exposure impact boundaries beyond those existing when the environmental impact statement was approved. In addition, state and local restrictions also require that the authority not permit or authorize any activity that would increase the noise impact area. GAO found no evidence that the authority had authorized any action that would increase airport noise; instead, the authority took actions to limit noise. Therefore, GAO found that the authority was in compliance with the grant agreement's noise provision. FAA and authority officials agreed that the report was accurate.
