"Potable" does not have a specific microbiological definition.  USP says water for the preparation of the various types of purified waters must meet the requirements of the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations issues by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or other relvant standards.
EPA drinking water standards for bacteria offer specific micro quality standards only for coliforms.  USP recognizes that other bacteria may be present.  These could include pseudomonads (including aeruginosa) that can be recovered from tap water.  A lit. search will find a large number of folks associating pseudomonas infection in hospitals with tap water.

 Feed water in Pharmaceutical plants should comply with the specification of drinking (Potable) water requirement at least as USP. 

As I remember it is: 

500 CFU/ml

Absence of Pseudomonas in 1 ml 

Absence of feacal Enterococci in 1 ml

Absence of Coliform in 100 ml.

You can check specification of drinking water.
