Re: E-M:/ I know a pollution source when I smell one- but

The portion of state law you may wish to paraphrase:

R 336.1901    Air contaminant or water vapor; when prohibited.
  Rule 901.  Notwithstanding the provisions of any other  department  rule, a
person shall not cause or permit the emission of  an   air   contaminant   or
water vapor in  quantities  that  cause,  alone   or   in    reaction    with
other  air contami-nants, either of the following:
  (a)  Injurious effects to human health or safety, animal life,  plant  life
of significant economic value, or property.
  (b)  Unreasonable interference with the comfortable enjoyment    of    life
and property.

The Hamtramck City Council has agreed to amend our zoning laws to prohibit environmentally undesirable businesses from locating in our community.
And while I know a pollution source when I smell one, I am not sure of the best wording to define what is and what is not ''environmentally friendly" 

If anyone has a suggestion on how best to phrase the definition or has a sample ordinance I would be glad to hear about it.
