This district is intended primarily for manufacturing and closely related uses. It is intended to preserve such lands for the functions of industrial activity, wholesaling, warehousing and distribution. To allow maximum latitude for operations, performance standards are applied at district boundaries. It is further the intent of this district that it be so located in relation to major thoroughfares that resulting traffic generated by industrial activity will not be channeled through residential area.

It is the intent to use performance standards for the regulation of industrial uses to facilitate a more objective and equitable basis for control and to insure that the community is adequately protected from potential hazardous and nuisance-like effects.
No activity in an Industrial District shall produce a sound level outside the district boundary that exceeds the following sound level measured by a sound level meter and associated octave band filter:
No other activity in any other district shall produce a sound level outside its premises that exceeds the following:
All noise shall be so muffled or otherwise controlled as not to become objectionable due to intermittence, duration, beat frequency, impulse character, periodic character or shrillness.
No operation or activity shall transmit any physical vibration perception threshold of an individual at or beyond the property line of the source. "Vibration perception threshold" means the minimum ground- or structure-borne vibrational motion necessary to cause a normal person to be aware of the vibration by such direct means as, but not limited to, sensation by touch or visual observation of moving objects.
Vibrations not directly under the control of the property user and vibrations from temporary construction or maintenance activities shall be exempt from the above standard.
External lighting. No operation or activity shall produce any intense glare or lighting with the source directly visible beyond an Industrial District's boundaries.
Odor. No operation or activity shall emit any substance or combination of substances in such quantities that create an objectionable odor as defined in § NR 429.03, Wis. Admin. Code.
Particulate emissions. No operation or activity shall emit into the ambient air from any direct or portable source any matter that will affect visibility in excess of the limitations established in Ch. NR 415, Wis. Admin. Code.
Visible emissions. No operation of activity shall emit into the ambient air from any direct or portable source any matter that will affect visibility in excess of the limitations established in Chapter NR 431, Wis. Admin. Code.
Hazardous pollutants. No operation or activity shall emit any hazardous substances in such a quantity, concentration or duration as to be injurious to human health or property, and all emissions of hazardous substances shall not exceed the limitations established in Chapter NR 445, Wisconsin Administrative Code.
Determinations necessary for the administration and enforcement of these standards range from those which can be made by a reasonable person using normal senses and no mechanical equipment, to those requiring substantial technical competence and complex equipment. It is the intent of this chapter that the methods to be used in determining compliance shall be the responsibility of the Building Inspector and Administrator subject to the following procedures:
Approval of building permits. Prior to approving a zoning permit for any industrial use or any change thereof, the Building Inspector and Administrator shall have received from the applicant evidence or assurance that the proposed use or changing use will satisfy the air quality, vibration and exterior lighting standards of this chapter.
Violation of standards. Whenever the Building Inspector or Administrator have reason to believe the air quality, vibration and exterior lighting standards of this chapter have been violated, written notice shall be made by certified mail to the person or persons responsible for the alleged violation. Such notices shall describe the alleged violation and shall require an answer or correction of the alleged violation within 30 days. Failure to reply or correct the alleged violation within 30 days may cause lawful action to be taken to cause correction as provided in this chapter or referral of the alleged violation to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
