Why would my water have a milky appearance?

Water becomes saturated with air due to temperature changes in the water giving it a milky look. To be sure that this is the problem collect a glass of water and set it out. The air should rise to the top, therefore clearing from the bottom up. Flushing your water lines may help this situation some but, it will disappear over time with the temperature change.
