Eu am apa. Why is it "I have the water", and not just "I have water"

"apa" is "the water" while "apă" is just "water"

If it was "am apă" it would have been translated "I have water".

"Am apa" is "I have the water".

You go out on a picnic and you are checking:"I have the water, the juice and the coffee."

It's some specific (already mentioned) water, not just some indeterminate quantity.
