Wow, nice mic, I hope it survived. 
If the mic wasn't powered on when dropped into the water, you may have a better chance, but even still, if may have survived. How pure was the water? If normal drinking water, just open it up as much as you safely can, and give it a day or two to dry out THOROUGHLY, inspect for any signs of corrosion, put it back together and try it. 
If it was something akin to pond water, or salt water, or a swimming pool, IMMEDIATELY open it up as much as you safely can, and flush it with as pure and as filtered water as you can. Again, give it a day or two to dry thoroughly, inspect for any signs of corrosion, put it back together and try it.
If it doesn't behave normally, contact Sennheiser for advice, and perhaps they can better help with cleaning, or maybe you can just get by with having the element replaced, etc.
good luck!

The 416 is inherently hissy. Does anyone know the rough frequency of this hiss so I can notch it out in post?

you might be better off increasing the pre amp gain before notching out frequencies. The area of hiss will be in the area of 5k to 8k which will harm the sound of your vocal recordings as that is also the area of clarity and intelligibility. Try the Triton Audio FetHead that will fix it for you. linkd is here:

How can I power a Sennheiser MKH 110?

Hi bibiofi

If you havent any experience with build electronic circuits, or soldering and the like, I suggest getting on of these. It runs of 2 9volt batts, or mains supply. Is the easiest way to go, and in reality, by the time you bought a decent case, sockets, and bits and peices to build one, you could get this one for $50. Too easy. I CAN build the stuff, but I would go this way. Plus it allows you to use 2 condensors if you want. And it does have the T-power 12 volt supply that the mic requires for operation. Is you need more info, please just ask. cheers
