Water Discoloration FAQs

Why does my water taste and smell funny?

Different factors can affect the taste and smell of your water. To report problems with your water use our online report form or call our Customer Service center Monday – Friday 7:30 am – 6:00 pm at 770-419-6200.

Why is my water “cloudy” or “milky” colored?

When water has been shut off at the main, this sometimes causes air in the lines. The color that you are seeing is probably due to this. You can check by filling a glass with water and letting it sit for a short time. If the water clears up, there is air in the line. To remove air from the line, turn on the cold water taps in your house and let them run for 5-10 minutes.  If water discoloring persists, email us the issue you are experiencing.  

Why are there white particles in my water?

This may be due to a faulty dip tube in your hot water heater. Sometimes the plastic in the tube breaks down and this can clog your faucets and showerheads.
