Why does my water seem cloudy?

Water that is cloudy is often the result of air in the water. To verify the cloudy water is caused by air, fill a clear glass with water from your faucet. Watch the glass closely. If the glass gets clear from the bottom to the top after a few minutes then there is air in the water.

While the quality of the water is not affected by the presence of air, it could be indicative of a problem in the distribution system. Excessive air in your water should be reported to the Water Utilities Division by calling 817-473-8411 or 817-477-2248.
