Default Multi Service Grounding

If you have a multi unit dwelling (residential) with separate services (existing) and you do a panel changeout and it had no grounding per say. To bring up to code do you run all your grounds to 1 ground rod and water main or keep each service on their own ground rods and water mains (if several to bldg all existing) ??

Two or more grounding electrodes that are bonded together shall be considered as a single grounding electrode system in this sense.

You take 3/0 copper crimped at the weather heads down to the cold water. Tap it to some #6 as it passes the ground rods.
