FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

The latest round of testing in Flint showed improvement in the city's water.

The Extended Sentinel Site program continues to show lead levels decreasing in Flint homes, according the Gov. Rick Snyder.

“It’s promising to see lead levels in Flint finally being more comparable to other municipalities across the state,” Snyder said. “The federal action level under the Lead and Copper Rule is 15 parts per billion, so seeing a downward trend to below that level in Flint is very good news.”

The program tests the lead levels at more than 160 homes in Flint. More than 93 percent of those homes were at or below the lead action level.

Officials encourage residents to continue using filters for the time being.
