(a) If any manufacturer carries on his business, or exposes the material used therein, or refuse produced thereby, so as to constitute a nuisance to the public or to individuals, any persons aggrieved thereby may unite in a complaint to the superior court for the judicial district where the nuisance exists, for the discontinuance or abatement of the nuisance, making the manufacturer, if known to them, the defendant. If the manufacturer is not known, they may make the person in charge of the premises the defendant. Service on the person in charge shall be sufficient notice to any defendant living out of this state.
(b) Each complaint shall be heard at the first session of the court or promptly thereafter unless continued for cause. A continuance may be granted upon such conditions and with such provision for temporary relief as the court orders.
(c) If, after hearing, the court is of the opinion that the plaintiffs are entitled to relief, it may make such order for the discontinuance or abatement of the nuisance, or for regulating the manner of conducting the business, as it finds to be necessary. If it appears that any such order is ineffectual to abate the nuisance or if it appears that the order is disobeyed or evaded, the court, upon such notice as it directs, may make such further order and provision for the enforcement of the original order or decree as may be deemed necessary.
(d) The Superior Court, or any judge thereof when the court is not in session, may, upon complaint, issue a temporary injunction against the continuance of any such nuisance until a final hearing may be had. If it is impracticable to stay the continuance of a nuisance by a temporary injunction or if the injunction is disobeyed or evaded, the court or judge may make and enforce such temporary order for the discontinuance of the nuisance until a final hearing, as may be deemed necessary.
(e) At least twenty-four hours' notice in writing of the time and place of making such a motion for temporary injunction shall be given to the defendants or some of them, if they are known and can be found in this state, and, if not, shall be left with the person in charge of the premises, if such person can be found.
