VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) - A septic-tank installer has been accused of illegally discharging an estimated 1,000 gallons of raw sewage into an Anderson County creek that runs into the Kentucky River.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (https://bit.ly/24KfOIw ) reports that a federal grand jury recently charged David Giles with one count of discharging a pollutant without a permit.

Giles, who works in the Versailles area, is licensed to install septic tanks, but the indictment says he doesn’t have a license to pump out tanks.

The indictment says Giles dumped raw sewage over a steep embankment into Wildcat Creek after being hired to pump out six septic tanks Dec. 2.

Giles could face up to three years in prison if found guilty.
