Access to water at slaughter facility

The meat and poultry regulations require "access" to water at all times for livestock in holding pens in federally inspected slaughter facilities.  What kind of automatic hog waterer would or should constitute "access" to water for pigs?  I have my thoughts which obviously differ from my Muslim inspector but I'm not going to voice them on this forum until others chime in.  And, no, I haven't got in trouble for it yet.
