104.     Common law and statutory nuisances.

Nuisances are divisible into common law and statutory nuisances. A common law nuisance is one which, apart from statute, violates the principles which the common law lays down for the protection of the public and of individuals in the exercise and enjoyment of their rights. A statutory nuisance is one which, whether or not it constitutes a nuisance at common law1, is made a nuisance by statute either in express terms or by implication2.
