Hi,
Thanks for writing in.
I dont think there is nothing that needs to be done right now. The worst case scenario is that your daughter would develop a gastrointestinal infection due to this water. That would lead to fever, diarrhoea and vomiting. This can be treated using plenty of fluids like oral rehydration solution, and probably a course of antibiotics as well.
I dont think you should be worrying. We can perfectly deal with this situation if the need arises.
Let me know if you have any other concerns
