My water has a milky or cloudy appearance, is it drinkable?

Water customers may notice a cloudy appearance to their water from on occasion. This is merely due to air trapped in the water which can occur when repairs are made to our water mains. The repair process traps air in the water lines, 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 remains safe to drink. If the cloudiness persists for more than a day or two, contact the Public Works Utility Division at 817-427-6440.
