Potable

Potable

<poh-tah-bul>

edible; safe; clean;

something untainted that is suitable for drinking.

The lake was a source of potable clear water. We did not need plumbing.

Memory trick:
potable reminds of pot-able.
It's good enough to put in a pot.

At work:
The water cooler is potable and the snacks are healthy. It is a great break room.
