My roommate and I began a lease in October. On the lease, the property management comapny said that water would be included in our rent. They are asking that we now sign an addendum to our lease saying that the tenant is responsible for water. Is this legal?

It is not illegal to ask you if you're willing to modify the agreement. You can always say no to it.
The only time you might not have a say is if you're a month-to-month when the landlord wants to change its terms. In that case, landlord will serve you with a 30-day Notice of Change of Terms. You must either agree to it or terminate the lease and vacate the premises.
