PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The former sewer works superintendent in Pierre is accused of falsifying pollution control reports.

A grand jury has indicted 47-year-old Greg Mohr on 10 misdemeanor charges that each carry a maximum punishment of a year in jail and a $2,000 fine. He’s due in court April 10.

Mohr told the Capital Journal that he didn’t yet have a lawyer and didn’t want to comment.

Mohr worked for the city for a quarter century and was superintendent for more than a dozen years. Mayor Laurie Gill says Mohr left last October when inconsistencies were discovered in reports.

Mohr’s accused of lying for more than a year on how well the city’s wastewater was treated before being dumped into the Missouri River. The city says there’s no indication of any environmental damage.
