Valley Medical Center Heliport

The Valley Medical Center (VMC) in San José, California proposed a change in the use of an existing helipad to allow larger helicopters to land at the pad. I&R prepared an environmental noise assessment of the proposed operations. The noise assessment consisted of measuring ambient noise levels at the project site, modeling future noise levels generated by project construction and operations, identifying noise impacts, and recommending noise abatement and mitigation measures to reduce exterior and interior noise levels at existing noise sensitive areas to meet the applicable noise control requirements.
