That does sound pretty vague and in all honesty (I know it's not what you want to hear) water is one of those effects that you almost always want to do as a practical effect - even George Lucas thinks it'd be silly to try and do it digital in some cases as there's just too much interaction.

It's one of those thing that you could easily do as a practical effect or, failing that, comp in stock footage which you could easily make yourself (black screen, backlit water etc). If you do want it digital though particles arn't really the way to go, realflow is where it's at!
