The emission of measurable noises from the premises shall not exceed 65 decibels as measured at the boundary property lines, except that where normal street traffic noises exceed that level, the measurable noise emanating from the premises may equal but not exceed the traffic noise. Within industrial districts, sound levels not exceeding 70 decibels may be permitted. In addition, objectionable sounds of any intermittent nature, or characterized by high frequencies even if falling below the aforementioned decibel reading, shall be controlled so as not to create a nuisance or hazard to adjacent properties. The above decibel rates refer to the commonly called A-scale.
