Why is my water white?

Cloudiness or white water is indicative of air dissolved in the water. To test this theory fill a glass with water from affected tap and watch to see if the cloudiness dissipates. Generally, when breaks occur, water mains must be shut off. During the opening and closing of valves, air can be introduced into the distribution which causes the water to appear cloudy. This air will make its way out of the water in time. If the cloudiness persists there may be a plumbing issue within the household.
