A noise survey quantitated the environmental noise levels which would be produced by F-105 aircraft flights over the Quanah Weapons Range located on Fort Sill. Data were obtained at a nearby Job Corp Center, Camp Boulder located on the adjoining Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge and the cities of Cache and Indiahoma. Adverse effects on the enviroment are predicted to be minimal and serious interference with present or future land uses is not expected. After serious consideration of many factors, the benefits to be gained through the proposed joint use of this existing artillery range outweigh the minimal adverse effects that would develop because of the flyby noise.
