Throughout his life time, the Buddha believed and advocated for respect of the natural world upon which all life depends. He knew water was vital for life and this is what he taught to his followers. Buddhism teaches respect for all life and since water is a life giver, water is seen as essentially significant to the existence of life.

He truly spoke his mind and never backed on his word.
