Cloudy/Milky Tap Water is Typically No Cause for Alarm

With the onset of warm weather, the Water Authority has seen an uptick in customer reports of cloudy water coming from their taps. Fortunately, in most instances cloudy water is caused by harmless air bubbles that can form as a result of temperature and pressure fluctuations. Let the cloudy water stand for a few minutes and it should clear up on its own. If it doesn’t, give us a call at 842-WATR, Option 1, and we’ll help you get to the bottom of it. More information about cloudy tap water is available on this U.S. Geological Survey website.
