Making Noise About Noise

An FAA-sponsored website and complaint hotline that will enable noise-weary Los Angeles County residents to report clattering helicopters went live Tuesday, a long-awaited development applauded by all sides involved in the complex issue.

The Automated Complaint System, as it's dubbed by the Federal Aviation Administration, enables residents to research flight tracks of helicopters and identify those causing excessive noise via the website at Heli-Noise-LA.com.

People may file a complaint on the website or call the hotline at 424-348-HELI (4354).

Hazard Mitigation Plan

The City of El Segundo has completed the 2015 Hazard Mitigation Plan and needs your review and comments!

El Segundo faces a number of potential hazards such as earthquakes, severe weather, tsunamis, epidemics, terrorism, hazardous materials, and more. Hazard mitigation plans are developed before a disaster strikes. The plans identify community policies, actions, and tools for long-term implementation to reduce risk and potential for future losses. Once adopted and implemented, these plans gradually lessen the impacts associated with hazard events. Hazard mitigation plans must be approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in order for the city to be eligible for mitigation grant funding. This plan represents El Segundo’s intent to reduce the impact of hazards within the city.

The California Department of Water Resources and The Association of California Water Agencies have just launched a new "Save Our Water" program to conserve water during this 3rd year of drought.
