SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds that the updated noise exposure maps submitted for the Pittsburgh International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of Part 150, effective November 8, 2007. Under section 103 of Title I of the Aviation Safety and Noise Abatement Act of 1979 (hereinafter referred to as ‘‘the Act’’), an airport operator may submit to the FAA noise exposure maps which meet applicable regulations and which depict non-compatible land uses VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:16 Nov 21, 2007 Jkt 214001 as of the date of submission of such maps, a description of projected aircraft operations, and the ways in which such operations will affect such maps. The Act requires such maps to be developed in consultation with interested and affected parties in the local community, governmental agencies, and persons using the Airport. An airport operator who has submitted noise exposure maps that are found by FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 150, promulgated pursuant to Title I of the Act, may submit a noise compatibility program for FAA approval which sets forth the measures the operator has taken or proposes for the reduction of existing non-compatible uses and for the prevention of the introduction of additional non-compatible uses. The FAA has completed its review of the updated noise exposure maps and related documentation submitted by the Allegheny County Airport Authority. The documentation that constitutes the ‘‘Noise Exposure Maps’’ as defined in section 150.7 of Part 150 includes: Exhibit 4.3–1 ‘‘Existing (2005) Noise Exposure Contours’’, and Exhibit 5.3–1 ‘‘Future (2010) Noise Exposure Contours’’ as well as all supporting information. The FAA has determined that these maps for the Pittsburgh International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements. This determination is effective on November 8, 2007. FAA’s determination on an airport operator’s noise exposure maps is limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with the procedures contained in Appendix A of FAR Part 150. Such determination does not constitute approval of the applicant’s data, information or plans, or a commitment to approve a noise compatibility program or to fund the implementation of that program. If questions arise concerning the precise relationship of specific properties to noise exposure contours depicted on a noise exposure map submitted under section 103 of the Act, it should be noted that the FAA is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of specific properties with regard to the depicted noise contours, or in interpreting the noise exposure maps to resolve questions concerning, for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of section 107 of the Act. These functions are inseparable from the ultimate land use control and planning responsibilities of local government. These local responsibilities are not changed in any way under Part PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65803 150 or through FAA’s review of noise exposure maps. Therefore, the responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface rests exclusively with the airport operator, which submitted those maps, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which consultation is required under section 103 of the Act. The FAA has relied on the certification by the airport operator, under section 150.21 of FAR Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has been accomplished. Copies of the full noise exposure map documentation and the FAA’s evaluation of the updated maps for the Pittsburgh International Airport are available for examination at the following locations: Allegheny County Airport Authority, Landside Terminal, 4th Floor Mezzanine, Pittsburgh, PA 15231–0370, Federal Aviation Administration, Harrisburg Airports District Office, 3905 Hartzdale Drive, Suite 508, Camp Hill, PA 17011.

the Allegheny County Airport Authority for the Pittsburgh International 
Airport under the provisions of Title I of the Aviation Safety and 
Noise Abatement Act of 1979 (Pub. L. 96-193) and 14 CFR part 150 are in 
compliance with applicable requirements.

DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the FAA's determination on

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Edward S. Gabsewics, CEP, 
Environmental Specialist, Federal Aviation Administration, Harrisburg 
Airports District Office, 3905 Hartzdale Drive, Suite 508, Camp Hill, 
PA 17011, Telephone 717-730-2832.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA finds 
that the updated noise exposure maps submitted for the Pittsburgh 
International Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements of 
Part 150, effective November 8, 2007.
    Under section 103 of Title I of the Aviation Safety and Noise 
Abatement Act of 1979 (hereinafter referred to as ``the Act''), an 
airport operator may submit to the FAA noise exposure maps which meet 
applicable regulations and which depict non-compatible land uses as of 
the date of submission of such maps, a description of projected 
aircraft operations, and the ways in which such operations will affect 
such maps. The Act requires such maps to be developed in consultation 
with interested and affected parties in the local community, 
governmental agencies, and persons using the Airport.
    An airport operator who has submitted noise exposure maps that are 
found by FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of Federal 
Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 150, promulgated pursuant to Title I of 
the Act, may submit a noise compatibility program for FAA approval 
which sets forth the measures the operator has taken or proposes for 
the reduction of existing non-compatible uses and for the prevention of 
the introduction of additional non-compatible uses.
    The FAA has completed its review of the updated noise exposure maps 
and related documentation submitted by the Allegheny County Airport 
Authority. The documentation that constitutes the ``Noise Exposure 
Maps'' as defined in section 150.7 of Part 150 includes: Exhibit 4.3-1 
``Existing (2005) Noise Exposure Contours'', and Exhibit 5.3-1 ``Future 
(2010) Noise Exposure Contours'' as well as all supporting information. 
The FAA has determined that these maps for the Pittsburgh International 
Airport are in compliance with applicable requirements. This 
determination is effective on November 8, 2007.
    FAA's determination on an airport operator's noise exposure maps is 
limited to a finding that the maps were developed in accordance with 
the procedures contained in Appendix A of FAR Part 150. Such 
determination does not constitute approval of the applicant's data, 
information or plans, or a commitment to approve a noise compatibility 
program or to fund the implementation of that program.
    If questions arise concerning the precise relationship of specific 
properties to noise exposure contours depicted on a noise exposure map 
submitted under section 103 of the Act, it should be noted that the FAA 
is not involved in any way in determining the relative locations of 
specific properties with regard to the depicted noise contours, or in 
interpreting the noise exposure maps to resolve questions concerning, 
for example, which properties should be covered by the provisions of 
section 107 of the Act. These functions are inseparable from the 
ultimate land use control and planning responsibilities of local 
government. These local responsibilities are not changed in any way 
under Part 150 or through FAA's review of noise exposure maps. 
Therefore, the responsibility for the detailed overlaying of noise 
exposure contours onto the map depicting properties on the surface 
rests exclusively with the airport operator, which submitted those 
maps, or with those public agencies and planning agencies with which 
consultation is required under section 103 of the Act. The FAA has 
relied on the certification by the airport operator, under section 
150.21 of FAR Part 150, that the statutorily required consultation has 
been accomplished.
    Copies of the full noise exposure map documentation and the FAA's 
evaluation of the updated maps for the Pittsburgh International Airport 
are available for examination at the following locations:
    Allegheny County Airport Authority, Landside Terminal, 4th Floor 
Mezzanine, Pittsburgh, PA 15231-0370, Federal Aviation Administration,

Camp Hill, PA 17011.
    Questions may be directed to the individual named above under the 
heading, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT.
