WHY IS MY WATER CLOUDY?
Cloudy water, also known as white water, is caused by air bubbles in the water.  It's completely harmless. Once water from our reservoir enters the transmission and distribution pipes,the water is pressurized.  Water under pressure holds more air than water that is not pressurized.  Once the water comes out of your tap, the water is no longer under pressure and the air comes of the the water as bubbles (similar to a carbonated soft drink). The best thing to do is let it sit in an open container until the bubbles naturally disappear, which takes about a minute for a regular sized glass of water.  It should start clearing from the bottom of the glass and go up as the bubbles are released.  If you have further questions, please call Bill Shipp at the water plant at 896-6681.
