57. After any works constructed under this Act have been completed and tolls established, the company shall keep the same in good and sufficient repair.
If any such works have not been constructed according to the description given thereof in the report required by section 9, or have become insufficient or out of repair, any person interested in the driving of timber in such river or stream may notify to any employee of the company a notice of such insufficiency.
If, within a reasonable time after the notification of such notice, the necessary repairs have not been completed, such company shall be liable for any injury suffered by any person as a result of the continuance of such insufficiency; but no company formed under this Act shall be held liable for damages, so long as its works are in accordance with the description or specification thereof in the original instrument required to be registered, or in any description or specification subsequently approved of and registered, or shall be liable for any injury arising from the accidental destruction or deterioration of their works, but only for the injury which may arise from the wilful neglect of the company after notice notified to one of its employees as hereinbefore provided.
