   2. Abatement.

3502.  A person injured by a private nuisance may abate it by
removing, or, if necessary, destroying the thing which constitutes
the nuisance, without committing a breach of the peace, or doing
unnecessary injury.

wrongdoer, and cannot be abated without entering upon his land,
reasonable notice must be given to him before entering to abate it.
