Snipped email from Haverford resident ....

The data released in Chapter 4 of the FEIS estimates the annual operations at the Airport will number 528,400 in the year 2007. Under the NO Build alternative, annual Departures from Runway 35 would be 27,477 while under Build Alternative 1 (the FAA's preferred choice) annual Departures from Runway 35 would be 59,181. This is an increase of over 115%. Do the Math. 59,181 / 27,477 = 2.1518

The FAA repeatedly tells the participants who made comment on the Draft EIS that this project is not capacity enhancement but delay improvement. There is no way the East/West runways could handle this traffic without extending 17-35. The airport is at its saturation point even the PA DEP urged them to consider demand management. Once again, any modification to the Airport's runways should be addressed more properly in the Capacity Enhancement Program (CEP) rather than by this bogus delay improvement project.

Crowded skies impact air quality --
MSNBC
THEY WEREN’T smokers, and there was no apparent other cause for their illnesses — except that Park Ridge lies just three miles from O’Hare Airport, one of the busiest air travel hubs on Earth. Their puzzling condition set Wietecka on a crusade against what he calls the “nasty soup” of chemicals that drifts out from O’Hare — nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides and hydrocarbons from jets, along with carbon monoxide from ground vehicles.

Airport runway argument continues to expand
The Delaware County Times, PA - Mar 21, 2005
"Should something go wrong on Bartram Avenue or I-95, all that traffic’s going to be diverted through Tinicum," he said. This happened recently when a city fire truck was involved in a collision near the airport entrance off I-95, he said. "The FAA only looked at the extension of the runway, but they don’t look at the road and the road closing," Poloncarz said. "They’re causing the problem, and they have to assume the responsibility. You’re going to see all those jam-ups if something goes wrong."
