I heard somewhere that a water dish is not required in an emporers enclosure because they get most of their water from the damp substrate. True our fals? And why?

You always need to provide a water dish for emps.
While the damp substrate provided the necessary humidity for the air they breathe, a water dish is essential to avoid dehydration as the scorpions do need to drink as well.

+1.

They also sometimes like to submerge themselves for short periods of time.
