Cloudy Water

Los Angeles County Waterworks Districts (LACWD) is dedicated to efficiently managing our water resources to meet the increasing demands of our communities. As part of our ongoing efforts to optimize operations, you may notice a temporary milky or cloudy appearance in your tap water due to necessary adjustments. It is important to note that this change is purely aesthetic and poses no health risks. The dissolved air naturally escapes, and water clarity is typically restored within a minute, as observed by pouring a glass of water and allowing a brief period.
