FAA Issues Record of Decision Approving Construction of New St. George, Utah Airport

On August 21, 2006, the FAA issued its Record of Decision approving construction of a new airport in St. George, Utah. The approval came after a federal appellate court struck down an earlier FAA approval for failure to adequately consider cumulative noise impacts of the project on nearby National Parks. The decision may well establish the standard for measurement of noise impacts to sensitive lands like National Parks.
