We've noticed that our water appears milky until we look closer and see a
lot of tiny bubbles. The bubbles dissipate within a minute. We are seeing
this with both hot and cold water. We are not on a well. We do not have a
pressure regular. What could be causing this?
Lots of things...which is actually it depends on factors not known from
your description. Does this happen at every outlet/tap or only on a
Has it always been this way or is this a new phenomenon?
Has the water supplier done something that has raised the service
pressure (like a new pumping station)?
My county water district guide says that bubbles are normal time to time
occurances for county and city water. Maybe caused by water main work being
conducted elsewhere, maybe caused by other things.
I'd be surprised to see them in hot water, normally that sort of stuff would
work it's way out long before it made it through the hot water pipe.
Why don't you call your water district and ask about the bubbles?

Um...the aerator on your faucet, perhaps? <g> Pressure regulators
don't introduce air into the water, BTW.
Unscrew the aerator from a faucet and see if you still have milky,
bubbly water. If so, talk to your city water supplier.
