Water Ingestion issue

What is this water ingestion issue I see on some threads. Still nearing my first maserati purchase. I read one thread that seemed like if you went through a puddle at high speed there could be a problem. Also one thread said something about if you take a turn to fast something leaked. Obviously, I am not an automotive expert but if I could get some clarification on these issues so I make sure to avoid problems if I can, I would like to. Thanks in advance for your help.

The air intake is located in the lower valance. I know of one person who drove through a very deep puddle and the water was snorkeled up the intake into the engine. Ouch.

Water also tends to accumulate in there. Some folks drill small drain holes to let the water out.
