Section 22-10-2

How and by whom nuisances to be abated.

Any such nuisance shall be abated by the county board of health and the county health officer in any of the ways provided in this chapter that may be appropriate or in any other lawful manner including abatement by a complaint. And an effort to abate by one method shall not preclude resort to any other method or methods.
