    It depends on the type of contaminated water and the health of your immune system. One contaminant is Giardia, which is found in most bodies of water these days. This protozoa multiplies quickly.Symptoms include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, pale and greasy stools, fatigue, bloating and weight loss. The onset of symptoms is usually immediate but it can take from 5-24 days for them to appear.
