I'd make this "water:quality" and values potable | mineral | de:heilwasser
(or an English correspondent if available, or DE:heilwasser because it
refers to German legislation)
maybe also add "toxic" / "contaminated"(?), "non-potable"
not sure about "radioactive"?

> water_source:sparkling=yes | no | unknown

in analogy: "water:effervescent" (or ~:sparkling)

> water_source:nonpotable=compromised | designated

could maybe be integrated in the quality-tag?

or have this inherited from the main tag (e.g. amenity=fountain,
man_made=water_tap, natural=spring, man_made=water_well
