Elko Residents Suing City for $3.6 Million in Flood Damages

Posted: Updated:

Residents in Elko are suing the city for flood damages to homes in the amount of $3.6 million after the Humboldt River flooded in February.

According to the Elko Free Daily Press, the lawsuit alleges that the city is responsible for the damages due to a relocation of the river as part of Project Lifesaver, which began in 1979.

The lawsuit lists 60 people as the plaintiffs, one of which is Assemblyman John Ellison.
