The Director of Public Health is hereby authorized and empowered to abate the nuisance, or direct the same to be abated by destroying the well or in any manner that may in the opinion of the Director of Public Health be proper to prevent the further use of the water supply from that well, and any person participating in such abatement proceedings shall incur no liability therefor.
