Group shot 30 feet across a pool ( indoors )

Here is a nightmare photoshoot.

Team picture at a small pool area with no room ANYWHERE else for a team shot to include water so I have to shoot from 30ft across the pool.

I am using a 5DM3 and plan to use 2 580EXII ( could use 3 ) everything on manual.

So futzing around with guide numbers I want to shoot at f8 cuz its a group. so at 30 feet my ballpark setting will be at ISO 1600. YAKKKKK

By adding another speed light on manual full power bring my ISO down?

Would a light modifier such as 60" umbrellas help at such a distance?

thanks in advance.
