No. 17, original

Argued April 30, 1931

Decided May 18, 1931

1. The Court approve the findings of it Special Master showing that the City of New York creates a nuisance in New Jersey by dumping into the ocean large quantities of garbage which subsequently float into New Jersey water and are washed up upon New Jersey bathing beaches, and that the City has unreasonably delayed to make provision for disposing of garbage by incineration. Pp. 283 U. S. 478, 283 U. S. 482.

2. Having jurisdiction of the defendant and of the property injured by the nuisance, the Court has jurisdiction to enjoin the defendant from dumping garbage in the ocean beyond the waters of New Jersey and of the United States. P. 283 U. S. 482.

3. The fact that the garbage is dumped at places permitted by the Supervisor of the Harbor of New York under the Act of June 29, 1888, does not affect the Court's jurisdiction or constitute a defense. Id.

4. A reasonable time should be accorded the City within which to carry out its plan for the erection and operation of incinerators, or to provide other means, to be approved by the decree, for disposing of the objectionable substances, and the case is again referred to the Special Master to find what is such reasonable time. P. 283 U. S. 483.
