The damages in an action for nuisance should be such as to compensate for whatever loss results to the claimant as a foreseeable consequence of the wrongful act1.
Where nuisance causes damage to property the general rule is that the measure of damages is the difference between the money value of the claimant's interest in the property before the damage and the money value of his interest after the damage; and this is not necessarily the same as the cost of repair or replacement2. Loss of profits or other expense consequential on the wrongful act is also recoverable
