[HN23] Although R.I. Gen. Laws § 10-1-1does not define nuisances, statutes defining nuisances generally do not change the common-law definition of the term or supersede the common law as to other acts which constitute a public nuisance at common law. Moreover, statutory remedies for the abatement of nuisances do not, as a rule, supersede existing common law remedies.
