Not much water is safe to drink right from the source anymore because of things like Giardia lamblia (beaver fever).
But this water would only need to be filtered or boiled to make it drinkable.
I'd run it through a cloth before boiling to remove sand, tadpoles, etc.

Life in the water is the best clue on whether you can drink it or not.

One note, some water in more urban areas would also need a virus filter because of fecal contamination. yummy.
