Gov. Doug Ducey declared a state of emergency in Santa Cruz County Thursday over flooding from the Nogales, Ariz. sewer.

On Wednesday, Nogales, Ariz. Mayor John Doyle proclaimed the city is under a state of emergency.

During an inspection, a dislodged section of cement that encases one of the manhole accesses was discovered. The break is reported approximately 200 yards north of the intersection of Old Tucson Rd. and the Nogales Wash.

Untreated sewage is seeping into the Nogales wash.
