Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

A nuisance is harm to a person or a class of persons from the use of one's property. A public nuisance involves a crime that threatens the health,morals, safety, comfort, convenience, or welfare of a community. Those committing a public nuisance may be subject to criminal prosecution resulting in imprisonment, a fine, or both and/or enjoined from continuing such behavior or ordered to remediate any problems caused by their actions

Apublic nuisance interferes with the public as a class, not merely one individual. An individual may not sue for a public nuisance. Rather, a public nuisance is addressed by criminal prosecution alone. If a single person is harmed, then, the person would have a civil action for a private nuisance and could seek monetary damages and/or remediation or injunction.
