Complaints about Flint water continue

Flint residents turned out Tuesday to complain about the quality of Flint's water and safety concerns.

Chanting “Clean water…that’s all we want,” a small group gathered outside city hall to protest against the quality of the city’s water and rising water bills.

A few hours later dozens of people attended a public meeting with city officials.

Flint officials say they are making progress on efforts to deal with elevated levels of a disinfection byproduct in the city's drinking water.

Last year, the city started tapping the Flint River for its water supply.

Some city residents want Flint to back to getting its water from Detroit.
