I am installing an electric water pump, and am going to do away with my alternator. The alternator is a one wire. I am installing a 2nd battery and purchasing a larger charger to care of the charging. What do I need to do with the alternator wire that is left?

I'd tape those wires up and out of the way for the time being.  After you drag that charger and generator around for a while and then have the eingine not start a time or two you may want to put that alternator back on!  

BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT TOO! O:)

I've run an alternator on everything I've had since the first Camaro.  Just too much hassle having to charge batteries all the time.  The Camaro I have now hasn't seen a battery charger this year and only has one battery.  What you will gain in performance from loosing the alternator you will probably loose in the added weight of that extra battery.
