Gov. Brian Sandoval says he's open to the idea of the state taking responsibility for a Southern Nevada flood control project that Clark County rejected.
Sandoval made the remarks after he toured the Mount Charleston subdivision Friday where a muddy flash flood this week damaged homes.
Meanwhile, a new flash flood warning was issued for Mt. Charleston this afternoon.
The warning was issued by the National Weather Service at 1:18 p.m. for the mountain's eastern communities, including Rainbow and Kyle Canyons. Roads affected include Kyle Canyon Road, U.S. 95 and Harris Springs Road. The order is in effect until 4:15 p.m.
After Monday's flood, dozens of residents were placed under a boil-water order that the Las Vegas Valley Water District lifted today.
The flooding was made worse because a wildfire there last summer destroyed much of the vegetation.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers offered to build an earthen barrier that could protect the homes from floods, but Clark County officials rejected the agreement because it required the county to assume legal liability for the berm.
Sandoval says he hopes to bring the parties to an agreement.
