Don’t the kidneys overwork if we were consume this much water?

Whether we drink this much water or not, our kidneys still must do the same amount of filtering of blood. There is no change in the blood flow to kidneys. The only change is, after filtering, any excess water is sent out as urine. If there is not enough water, the water is sent back into the blood stream and less urine is produced. If we were to drink enough water, the waste material will be discharged rather than getting accumulating in the kidneys and hence causing “less” strain to the kidneys not more.
