BEND, Ore. (AP) - A Washington-based construction company that was in charge of expanding the city’s sewage treatment plant has filed a lawsuit against the city for unpaid work.

The Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/2foS5IU ) that Apollo Inc. filed the lawsuit in Deschutes County Circuit Court while the city was in a mediation session the company.

The company’s lawsuit alleges that design flaws led to delays and unexpected costs for the sewage plant project.

Apollo Inc. did not return a request for comment.

Apollo was awarded a $32 million contract in 2013 to expand the facility. After problems, the city chose to remove Apollo from the project.

Last month, city attorney Mary Winters said the construction company didn’t manage the project properly, which caused delays and a number of changes in the construction plan.
