This spell transforms normal water into fine dust. Any creature in the water is allowed a Reflex save to escape before the area is turned to dust (though only creatures that require water for survival, such as fish, suffer any ill effects from the dust).

If the body of water targeted is larger than the area affected by this spell, the remaining water simply pours into the affected area to mix with the dust and cause a silt-like mud to form on the surface in the area.

If targeted against a water-based creature (one with the water subtype) of Huge or smaller size, the spell kills the creature if it fails a Fortitude saving throw. Even if the save succeeds, the creature takes 1d6 points of damage per caster level (maximum 15d6).

Change water to dust counters and dispels change dust to water.
