At times during the year, your tap water may appear cloudy or milky. This is not a health concern.
Cloudy water is usually caused by dissolved air which is released in the form of fine air bubbles when cold water becomes warmer or where there has been maintenance work done on the water main close to your property and air is trapped in the main.
These air bubbles give the water its cloudy appearance.
To confirm this, fill a glass with cold water allow it to stand. You should notice the air bubbles disappear and clear from the bottom of the glass upwards.
If the problem persists, please contact Council on 07 577 7000.
