Is my flooded garden area safe?

Q: Is it safe to plant a vegetable garden after the area was covered by polluted flood waters for three days? Is it safe to eat existing vegetables (kale, garlic, etc) that survived? Our well tests positive for coliform bacteria and E. coli... two weeks later there is still floodwater remaining in our pasture. (This refers to the flooding of the Willamette river in Corvallis on April 10th 2019.) Should I wait a week, a month or a year to plant???
