What should comprise the water add-on?

Since there is unlikely to be a water grid, I would envisage the water add-on would comprise rain-water harvesting. This would include collection (i.e. from the roof of structures) -> filtering macro-particles -> micro-particles -> UV/chemical to remove bacteria/viruses/protozoa -> storage.
