§

854. When only part of landowners to open drain

When it appears

to the select-board that the owner or occupant of a piece of land is not

sufficiently interested in opening the ditch or watercourse to be required to

perform or pay for any part thereof, but it appears necessary for the other

parties that such ditch or watercourse should be constructed across such land,

they may award that the same be done at the expense of such other parties. The

parties in whose favor the award is made, may open the ditch or watercourse

across such land at their own expense without being trespassers.
