Is drinking water Kosher?

Water is Kosher--as long as it's just plain pure water and hasn't been boiled in something used for cooking non-kosher foods or used for sacramental purposes in some non-Jewish rite.

Plain bottled water (non-carbonated and unflavored) does not need a Kosher symbol. Although you may find many companies that have a kosher symbol on their bottled water it is really just to satisfy the concern of the over scrupulous individual, but is technically not necessary.
