Wednesday marks the end of a program where Michigan paid for Flint residents' water bills as a result of the ongoing water crisis.
But The Washington Post reports the water is still so contaminated, locals need to use a filter to drink it safely.
Michigan has spent $41 million to offset local water bills, giving locals a 65 percent credit each month on water bills. Anna Heaton, spokeswoman for Gov. Rick Snyder, said the city's water now meets federal safety standards.
They want to make it look like they've resolved this thing, that it's fixed. It's been three years, and we still can't drink the water.
Heaton said Michigan would still provide filters and replacement cartridges to help keep people safe as lead pipes were being replaced.
But some locals weren't satisifed.
Flint Mayor Karen Weaver called on the state to pay water bills until filters weren't needed.
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality found last month, the city's water system showed lead levels below levels highlighted in the federal Lead and Copper Rule.
But residents are still advised to only use bottled water for drinking, washing and cooking.
Many Flint residents may not be able to pay their own water bills, which could leave Flint with less money to spend on getting water from Detroit. And many people have lines with lead but aren't eligible for pipe replacement.
Some locals say not much has changed since the city got national attention.
When President Trump mentioned clean water during his Joint Address, critics took notice.
