A source connected to United Water has told the Rockland County Times that an internal investigation into alleged misappropriation of funds/misstatement of revenue by former-General Manager Michael Pointing is underway.
Pointing was escorted from United Water headquarters recently along with two accountants, the source told the Rockland County Times.
United Water refused to address the rumors circulating about Pointing’s departure, stating, “It is our policy not to discuss personnel matters.” They did not issue any denial of the allegations.
David Stanton, president of the United Water Regulated Division, has been named interim GM of the company’s Rockland County operations.
The Rockland County Times first received an anonymous tip about the situation on Monday and a reliable tip on Wednesday.
It is unknown whether United Water has contacted law enforcement about the case.
