Why does the water sometimes look milky?

Milky looking water is an indication that there is air in the water. This is not harmful and is usually caused by recent water main work or repair in your area. Notify Public Works of the problem, so they can remove the air with hydrant flushing. Contact Public Works
at 952-227-1300.
