    The word potable simply means drinkable, or safe for consumption by humans. It means the water or liquid has been taken from a source that is clean and hygenic, which should not cause physical problems for humans if they consume the water or liquid. There are many sources of non-potable water or liquid because of chemicals or poisons that may be near or in the water/ liquid and can cause severe illness or death in humans, which is why it is so important that people know whether the water/ liquid they are drinking is safe for consumption or not.
