MOUNT CHARLESTON (AP) — 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.

Dozens of residents were placed under a boil water order that the Las Vegas Valley Water District lifted Friday.

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.

Sandoval says he hopes to bring the parties to an agreement.
