You can use hypervoxels, image sequence (3D World did something similar to this
within the last year - fountain). You could even go with textures. It depends on what you want the final piece to look like and how quickly you want it done. Larry did a volcano on one of his dvd's, where he used textures on a uv map to create the lava.

One of the Inside Lightwave books by Dan Ablan had a tutorial of a water faucet. The main difference is a water fall is wider and thinner plus the foam and mist.

Needs more particles, but you get the idea.

OK, took me some searching, but it's on Larry's APS video. Not sure where you can get this from now. I know alot of Larry's stuff was over on liberty 3d, but can't see it there..

Blender fluids to lightwave would probably yield more realistic result than
anything simulated directly in lightwave.

Blender is free, but hate the UI and how to use it, you might want to look
for cagemans crash course here on these forums for blender fluids to lightwave.

Real flow to lightwave is another option.

If youré doing your own reels and not commercial work, you could try out houdini free apprentice and simulate the fluids in there and export mdd to lightwave for render.
