dear new yorkers, wonder why your water is cloudy?

my roommate and i have been wondering why some days our water is extra cloudy and some days it’s ok…

here’s why!

Air becomes trapped in the water as it makes its long trip from the upstate reservoirs to the City. As a result, microbubbles of air can sometimes cause water to appear cloudy or milky. This condition is not a public health concern. The cloudiness is temporary and clears quickly after the water is drawn from the tap and the excess air is released.
