Pollution Trial Set For Ex-Wastewater Manager

KSAL StaffSeptember 6, 2013

A federal judge has set a fall trial date for the former Hays wastewater manager charged with lying about nitrogen levels in the city’s discharges.

Court records show the case against 57-year-old Charles L. Blair was scheduled Thursday to go before a federal jury on Nov. 5.

A four-count indictment charges Blair with making false statements about nitrogen levels in effluent at the city’s wastewater treatment plant.

Three counts relate to statements made in discharge monitoring reports. One count charges him with lying to agents of the Environmental Protection Agency when he said he had provided accurate levels for the report.

Blair has denied lying.

He is free on a $10,000 bond after a brief court appearance Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Wichita.
