Flint is moving forward on an effort to replace old lead and galvanized steel water lines amid the city's crisis with lead-tainted water.

A kickoff for the latest phase of the Fast Start program is Friday. Mayor Karen Weaver says it'll result in the replacement of service lines at 200-250 homes.

This fall, her office says the next phase of the replacement program that started in March will cover 5,000 additional homes.
