I am curious if any other Riverside/Brookfield residents are aware of the sharply escalated amount of Jet aircraft noise over our towns. It is my unscientific opinion that the level and frequency of this disturbance has increased markedly since the opening of the new runways at O’Hare Airport. 

I have witnessed many mornings and evenings wherein there are periods of constant jet noise. No sooner does the sound from one jet fade than another takes its place. I have lived in Brookfield for eight years and never recall a time when I’ve even been aware of noise levels like we now suffer. I suspect this will receive more attention when the warmer months return and we resume more outside activities.
