The sound of airplanes from Logan Airport has become deafening when the conditions are right - or wrong for residents of East Watertown.
A resident of the East End of town first alerted Town Councilor Angeline Kounelis over the summer about the noise. The noise becomes so bad that her family longer has meals outside when the planes are flying over, according to a letter to Kounelis.
Kounelis said she noticed it on the morning of Saturday, Sept. 14.
"Every 3 to 5 minutes it was as though Keenan Street was at the end of a Logan Airport runway," Kounelis said.
The noise can start as early as 5:45 a.m. and can last until late at night. The problem has arisen since the new 33L runway at Logan Airport opened, according to a memo from Town Councilor Vincent Piccirilli said. The runway is used when the wind is blowing from west to east, he said.
State Rep. Jonathan Hecht was also alerted to the problem, and he found a line for Watertown residents to call when the noise becomes problem. The MassPort Noise Abatement line can be reached at 617-561-3333.
