[ARCHIVED] Cloudy Water


Some North Richland Hills water customers may have noticed a cloudy appearance to their water recently. This is merely due to air trapped in the water. The water remains safe to drink and for all other uses, and continues to comply with state and federal water quality standards. 

Air entered the water distribution system when the Trinity River Authority de-pressurized the main water feed from Colleyville.  When the water main was brought back to full pressure, air was trapped in the water line, giving the water a cloudy or milky white appearance when it is drawn from the tap. After sitting for a few minutes, the cloudiness will dissipate as the air bubbles break apart. 

The water is expected to return to a normal appearance in the next few days.
