     Water cannot be magnetized in any way except very slightly by a very 
large magnetic field.  It will be magnetized in a direction opposite to 
the applied field because it is Diamagnetic. 

[added by MadSci Admin:  There are some useful previous answers in our
archives which I found using our search engine to search on "water diamagnetism":
