MIDLAND, MI (WNEM) -

Flint's problems highlight what's happening in post-industrial cities across the country, according to an expert who spoke at Northwood University on Tuesday night.

Aaron Renn said replacing water pipes comes with an immense cost.

Flint remains a work in progress.

"In terms of the actual water situation, I don't think we actually know what the solution is going to be from an engineering perspective yet," Renn said.

He said Flint needs to restructure itself to be financially sustainable.
