AbstractAn environmental assessment of the impacts (EIA) on the Dorval residential areas resulting from aircrafts activities in the Montreal international airport are studied. There are numerous aircrafts of different Airlines companies, which serve at the airport and travel to various locations around the world. A portable Digital Sound Level Meter was used in this study for the field measurement and sociological surveys representing the residential areas focusing on 30 positions to determine noise levels at different locations at the surrounding residential area of the airport. The distance from Airport to the selected sampling positions was ranging from 2 km to 11 km. The sampling and monitoring were carried out at representative locations during the morning, afternoon and evening in presence and absence of flights. In presence of a flight, the maximum value was 97.1 dB (A) at Clement Avenue/Dawson Avenue, while the minimum value was 52.8 dB (A) at Boul Pine Beach/Lakeshore drive.
