Town of Lincoln officials are still looking to be reimbursed roughly $30,000 in product and installation costs for whole-house water treatment systems installed by a Milwaukee-based company. In September, the town charged Stonehouse Water Technologies with being deceptive by not following up on its promises of monitoring five water systems it installed in Lincoln homes in spring 2017. In a release following the town’s criticism, Stonehouse Water Technologies CEO Hensley Foster said the pilot project was completed in November and has provided ongoing support. The two sides have not met since a request for a meeting was made last October. Town chairperson Cory Cochart says they are in the process of drafting a legal letter requesting reimbursement.
Cochart says the next step could be a lawsuit if their letter for reimbursement gets ignored. An update on the town’s efforts will be provided at the next Town of Lincoln board meeting on November 5th.
