This sentence strongly suggests that our residences were included in environmental and sound studies for the
Federal 2015 runway project.

The only areas involved in the studies were likely located very close to the airport in Federal noise map contours that measure overhead aircraft noise.  The effect on us residences apparently was not included in any pre-project studies.
***************************************************************
Defense Statement: "Plaintiffs allege that noise increased after 2015. But the only change potentially impacting noise in that time period was the RSA project, which was determined to only affect 30 homes within the 65 dB CNEL noise contour - none of which include Plaintiffs' homes."
                                     source: 2019 Informal hearing of defendant, City and County of San Francisco, page 10

The references to "65 dB", "CNEL", and "noise contour" are references to airport FAA jurisdictions that do not involve our neighborhoods. 

The local runway noise that we are subjected to does not fall under the direct authority of the FAA. The entity responsible for local runway noise and its effect on residents is the City and County of San Francisco.
