Water has no genetic material, it is made up of molecules consisting of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. You can read more about the process of how a plant is genetically modified here.
If you want to know if GMOs or chemicals that are used on them can get into the water supply system, GMOs actually enable farmers to till less often, leading to improved soil health and water retention, reduced runoff, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Read more about GMOs’ effect on the soil health here. Stephen Adams, Chemistry Regulatory Affairs Manager at Monsanto Company, has also written about what practices farmers use to avoid pesticides entering ground and surface water.
