Bringing Relief To Mountain Residents

(Mt Charleston, NV) — Governor Brain Sandoval traveled to the Rainbow Subdivision on Mt Charleston with some good news for residents.

The governor says the state will accept the liability for a flood control project residents have been hoping for.

The Army Corps of Engineers will construct a temporary berm above the subdivision. The governor says the berm should divert any future flood waters to a canal that will carry the water away from homes.

The mountain threatened by a fire last summer was then struck with flooding that seriously damaged a number of homes, then another flood struck just weeks ago.

Governor Sandoval says the Army Corps of Engineers plans to have the  project completed by this winter’s first snow.
