WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Federal prosecutors have trimmed their case against a former northwest Kansas waste water manager accused of violating the Clean Water Act.
A criminal information filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court charges Charles L. Blair with a single count of negligently causing a violation of a permit issued to the city of Hays.
Blair was originally charged in a four-count indictment with making false statements about nitrogen levels in discharges from the city's wastewater treatment plant.
Blair, who retired last year, has denied the charges but is scheduled to be in court Monday for a change-of-plea hearing.
