LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is set to provide an update on his investigation into the water crisis in Flint.

A statement from Schuette’s office late Sunday night said the attorney general will “discuss matters related to his investigation” at a press conference Monday morning. It provided no further details.

Schuette, a Republican, announced Jan. 15 he would investigate what, if any, Michigan laws were violated in the process that left Flint’s drinking water contaminated with lead.

The financially struggling city switched from Detroit’s municipal water system and began drawing from the Flint River in 2014 to save money. The water wasn’t properly treated to prevent lead from pipes from leaching into the supply.

Residents have been urged to use bottled water and to put filters on faucets.
