The evidence might be only anecdotal at this point, but Guelph residents are noticing more noise from airplanes these days. With Waterloo Region’s airport to the west of Guelph and Toronto’s international airport to the east, it’s not surprising things can get a bit noisy. But people who are bothered by jet noise don’t have to just sit and take it in silence. As the Waterloo airport’s general manager Chris Wood notes, people with noise complaints are encouraged to use the airport’s website to report them. And, he says, the monitoring of airspace by air-traffic controllers means it’s possible to find out where a plane is coming from and going to, along with its altitude. When airport authorities adopt a cooperative stance, problems are easier to fix.
