TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Kansans are seeking settlement in a dispute over water.
The so-called water trial begins Monday, pitching the State of Kansas versus neighboring Nebraska and Colorado.
Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says Nebraska has violated the terms of a 2003 settlement and overused more than 78,000 acre-feet of water from the Republican River during 2005 and 2006.
Special master William Kayatta has been appointed by the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the trial in Portland, Maine.
Kayatta will then make a recommendation to the highest court about the case's disposition.
