overnight without water?

When still in the brooder, cut holes in a Tupperware lid, put the lid back on the container, fill with water and put the whole container in a cake pan to catch the excess water they will dribble. The lid will keep them from getting into the water. I wouldn't take away food and water overnight at all but some say it's safe to do so around 2 months old.

I don't have water out with home hatched ducklings that are loose. Being cared for by their mamma. Even if I did put the little baby drinking stations out. The geese would want to drink out ore them and they be empty anyway.

Is it because of the heat lamp you need water all the time?

Here they babies show up with their mommas in the morning after noon and nite and they do fine
