Give particles a go.

I think if you google water in maya you should find some tuts, I think that Mike McKinley had a tutorial on his stie if I remember rightly.

there are a few tutorials where you make a water flow like in a shower. Im sure if you adjusted it correctly you could add it to the side of a cliff to make it a waterfall.


they have different tutorials but they are somewhat hard to follow as far as what work flow they used.
