    plus the water is used to top up the ISS tanks, so why dump it anyway?"
    
    In fact, water dumps are routinely performed while free flying AND while
    attached to ISS. There was a contamination issue but that argument was
    overcome. The Shuttle provides ISS all the water ISS can utilize; but ISS
    now hands over its excess water for the Shuttle to dump. What will happen to
    excess water on ISS when the Shuttle leaves is not clear right now.
