In brief: It can be bad

Drinking too much water can lead to severe disturbances of electrolytes in your blood which can cause devastating medical problems.
Your best bet is to drink pure water whenever you are thirsty. If you are going to be working outside in a hot environment then drinking enough water to prevent thirst is ok. Just don't over do it.
