I'd guess that Google has bottled water for the same reason my wife drinks bottled water: Chloramine. The local water supply (and we're about as "local" to Google as it gets) changed from chlorine to chloramine a year or two ago.
Chlorine will dissipate from water in the fridge after a day or so; chloramine, never. The water doesn't taste as good as Hetch Hetchy water should...and my wife wonders about health issues as well. We're told the shift to chloramine is a Very Good Thing...but not if you're drinking the water. I still do, but geez, bottled water that's just treated tap water from across the bay (e.g., Aquafina, which is absolutely just treated tap water and in our case bottled about 20 miles away) tastes a WHOLE lot better.
