Schuette will make a formal announcement Wednesday afternoon, and he will be joined by Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton, Special Counsel Todd Flodd, Chief Investigator Andy Arena and Deputy Chief Investigator Ellis Stafford, WXYZ-TV reported, citing the Attorney General’s office.

One Flint water department employee will be charged, along with two mid-level engineers with Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, sources told ABC News affiliate WJRT-TV in Flint. At least one of the charges relates to falsifying government documents, WJRT-TV reported.

The source of drinking water for the city of Flint was changed from the Detroit River to the Flint River in April 2014.
