HMMH Completes Hanscom ESPR
HMMH recently completed the 2012 Hanscom Field Environmental Status and Planning Report (ESPR) for the Massachusetts Port Authority. The 2012 ESPR compares current environmental conditions at Hanscom Field with historical data from the 2000 and 2005 ESPRs. Additionally, the 2012 ESPR presents future scenarios for evaluating potential cumulative environmental effects based on forecast conditions of anticipated airport activity levels.
Two of the most important environmental issues addressed in the ESPR are noise and air quality. For both topics, HMMH collected baseline aircraft operations data for 2012 and forecasted operations for the planning years of 2020 and 2030. HMMH then modeled noise and air quality to generate noise contours and predict emissions levels for criteria air pollutants. Read more
