FLINT, Mich. (AP) -

A public forum is planned in Flint where experts will share details on testing results amid the city's crisis with lead-tainted water.

The office of Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder announced the April 16 event, saying experts who recently met in Chicago to discuss Flint's water will be among those on hand.

The Flint Water Interagency Coordinating Committee on Friday was given a recent review of test results that says water quality is improving. Residents still are being advised to use water filters.

In a statement, Snyder says: "we still have much work to do to get people the quality of water they need and deserve."

Residents are using bottled water or filtered water. For 18 months, Flint used corrosive water from the Flint River, which leached lead from old plumbing.
