    When would you say it is okay to drink the water after it returns? Keep in mind that the water is usually muddy for a few seconds or so once it returns.

    depends on the work done. I'd say be sure all taps are run for like 5 mins before you use them. It also depends on what the water is used for. If your boiling the water for something... then the bacteria will be dead, as you boil it.
