FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

If you're still relying on bottled water to get by this may have a huge impact on you.

Three water resource sites in Flint closed Tuesday, including the Old Farmer’s Market, Grace Emmanuel Baptist Church and Lincoln Park United Methodist Church.

"It's disheartening. We still have a problem here. This is really close to my home and it's really an important location," said Dusty Murray, Flint resident.

Murray stopped at the distribution site at the Old Flint Farmer's Market on Tuesday for the last time. She is not happy it is closing.

"I'm going to have to seek out somewhere else. I'm really going to have to figure something else out," Murray said.

Multiple water tests done by the state show Flint's water is below the federal action level for lead and that is why the state decided to shut down three of the distribution sites.

Murray said she just wants to be able to use her tap water normally again.

"I just hope that first this problem gets resolved in a timely manner and I think it's already taken too long," Murray said.

There are still four other resources site that will remain open for now:

Ward 1: Ross Plaza
2320 Pierson St.
Flint, MI 48504

Ward 4: Franklin Avenue Lot
2804 N. Franklin Avenue

Ward 6: West Court Street Church of God
2920 W. Court Street
Flint, MI 48503
