Once again, the city of Flint is being put on notice by the state about problems with its water system. 

Last year, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality listed more than dozen things the city needed to do to address problems with the water system and personnel.

Apparently some of those issues remain. 

The Flint Journal reports the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality has sent a letter to Flint Mayor Karen Weaver saying the city has failed to fix water system problems.

The Journal says the MDEQ is sending a proposed consent order to the city, outlining what needs to be done and asking the city to come up with a schedule to make the necessary changes.
