    In general, water and electricity do not mix. Did you remove the battery as soon as you fished the camera out of the water? If you let it dry with the battery installed, the current could have damaged the circuitry. Even if you had removed the battery immediately, I wouldn't hold out much hope.

    Was it salt water or fresh water?

    The best advice I can give you is to take it in to a reputable camera repair shop and have them take a look at it.

Sounds like you tried to turn it on while water was still inside and fried the circuits.

Theres a thin metal pipe hanging from ceiling & hovers over a funnel top pvc pipe. There are drk green & brown dry splashes on the pvc pipe. Drain pipe has a strong mildew smell but idk what pipes for

Hi LaTrice:
Tankless water heaters are essentially little gas fired furnaces that heat water, not air. When natural gas burns, a by-product of the combustion is water vapour. Since the furnaces are very efficient, the exhaust gas temperatures are relatively low, and as they go out the duct, they drop even more and the water vapour present condenses and runs back down to a capture device so that it does not dribble all over your floor.
This drain pipe is supposed to go to your sewer (or building drain) and is also supposed to be protected by a TRAP that needs to have a minimal amount of water present to prevent sewer gases from coming back into the room. In hot dry weather, these traps can dry out as there is not as much condensation present.
It could be that when the unit was installed, it was connected by way of a trap that did not have a means of staying primed.
Hope this helps.

Camra went into water

And let me guess, it could not swim?
If the water was very clean, please remove the memory card and the battery. You can dry them separately. When no water is coming out of the camera, put it in a plastic bag and fill that with rice. If you also do have silica gel. or other things to remove moist, you can use that too.
Let it dry for a few days.
If the water was dirty, the only way will be the camera has to be opened and cleaned complete. I would not recommend you to do that yourself. It is quite a job, and you need to know about electronics and you need special cleaning fluids.

If it was dropped in water ,it must've fried the power chip.This Can Not Be fixed with a hair dryer...if you take it down to a computer repair shop they coul replace the chip for a price of around $400 (depend whether other parts or circuits have been harmed) I've done this before on my t100 and I spent at least $500 for the chip and the LCD screen.

When I turn my camra on the screen is black and all the functions on my camra do not work,

May be you had it wet or dropped it.If wet just remove the battery and allow it to dry under a fan but NEVER TRY TO HEAT IT and then turn it on.If it's not the problem check the battery output and consider replacing with a new one if expired.

You mention Niagara and ferry (Maid of the Mist?). If you've gotten water inside your camera, the following does not apply. But if you paid extra attention to keep your camera dry when the Maid got close to the falls, please read on:
