RSI FAQ re: Program Termination

Residential Sound Insulation (RSI) Program Termination - Frequently Asked Questions

The RSI program used funds from Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to treat homes from the effects of noise from LAX.  As of May 11, 2018, LAWA and FAA will no longer reimburse the city for RSI administrative expenditures.  This means the RSI program cannot continue unless expenses are paid from the City’s general fund and there is no predictable schedule when construction can restart.  Terms and conditions for performing RSI work have changed and some of the criteria are yet to be resolved.  As such, the city does not feel that there is a benefit to the residents for continuing to be involved in this process.  Instead, staff recommends that the airport be responsible for mitigating the noise it creates which is the normal RSI arrangement throughout the country.  With no source of funding, staff is recommending council direct the City Manager to terminate El Segundo’s RSI program.
