Use a water remover like Heet.

If you haven't noticed any problems by now it's doubtful you will have any, water tends to go to the bottom of the tank and is the first thing the pump will pickup when you start it. But if you want to be sure then do what F_O_R suggested, just one bottle of HEET will do it in a full tank of fuel.

Make sure it is the red bottle of heat, not the yellow one.
