I have no answer to your question, but I am amazed at how many bees I see at the puddles. I have a large body of water next to us, but we tarped an area to stop things from growing so we can replant it. The puddles on the tarp are full of bees all the time.

So I think you are correct in how much water bees take in. As to how it affects hives I have no idea. I am sure there are some backyard colonies that are not getting enough water.
