Why Does My Water Look Cloudy or Milky?

Your water is still perfectly safe to drink. 

Cloudy or milky water is usually from tiny air bubbles in the water. Water is under pressure in the pipes and can causes air to dissolve in it. These bubbles initially make a glass of water look cloudy. But they will slowly rise and disappear.
