Noise

The Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA) is committed to making Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) a world-class facility for our airlines and the millions of people who use DTW each year. While DTW generates more than 86,000 jobs and more than $10.2 billion in total economic impact across Michigan, the Airport Authority considers quality of life for residents who live near the Airport as well.

One of the most significant and challenging issues facing airports today is the effect of aircraft noise on surrounding communities. To address this issue, the Airport Authority has developed a Noise Compatibility Plan (NCP) which identifies and addresses such concerns. It is our goal to be a good neighbor to our local communities.
