The suit was filed by K & P Plumbing of Salt Lake City, who was contracted to construct a sewer lagoon project.

A one-day hearing will follow Dec. 1 in Salina.
Jorgensen said a decision is expected to be announced within 30 days following the hearings.
The Environmental Protection Agency, the Farmers Home Administration and the Water Pollution Control Board have all become involved in discussions with attorneys representing the two factions in the suit.
