121. Interference with natural conditions.

If an owner or occupier1 interferes with natural agencies or conditions and thereby imposes a heavier burden upon his neighbour he may be liable in an action for nuisance at the suit of the neighbour for damage occasioned thereby to the neighbour2. However, the abstraction of water which is percolating in undefined channels under the occupier's land does not give rise to an action in nuisance by his neighbour, notwithstanding that this results in the diminution in the quantity of water percolating under the neighbour's land and thereby causes him injury
