FLINT, Mich. (AP) — A federal emergency declaration over Flint’s lead-tainted water crisis is ending, but officials say work will continue to fix the drinking water system and provide services to city residents.

The declaration ends Sunday, after which the state will bear the full cost of bottled water, filters and other water supplies.

Federal resources, health programs and monitoring efforts also will continue.
