52:18 Taking Land.
If any such district cannot obtain for a reasonable price any land or easement in land required by it for its purposes it may, through its commissioners or other duly authorized agents, make and file in the town clerk's office of each town in which such land is situated a description thereof by reference to permanent bounds or other means of description, and may petition the selectmen of the town or towns in which the district is situated for the assessment of the owner's damages. All subsequent proceedings and rights of all parties in interest shall be the same as in taking land for highways located in one town, or 2 adjoining towns, as the case may be.
