DENVER -- Single residents from Brighton, Strasburg and Keenesburg made up 76 percent of all noise complaints filed against Denver International Airport in 2017, according to airport data.

The Keenesburg resident, who lives in Weld County about 30 miles northeast of the DIA runways, out-complained everyone in the state, calling the airport more than 1,700 times. The complainant is responsible for 49 percent of all noise complaints.

The number of households lobbing a noise complaint at DIA jumped from 46 in 2016 to 71 in 2017 - a 54 percent increase in residents bothered by airplane noise. The total number of noise complaints fell 25 percent during that same time period, from 4,664 in 2016 to 3,494 last year.

DIA has a hotline so Coloradans can make their noise complaints heard. Citizens can ring 303-342-2380 and leave their name, address and date and time of their complaint.
