Water bourne diseases

What kind of diseases could you catch from drinking or washing in contaminated water? Preferably water that's had a dead body dumped in it. It needs to be something that causes a high fever, but other symptoms are negotiable. I'd also like it to be non-fatal. Right now I think typhoid fever is my best option but I'd welcome other ideas.

Removal of eyeballs

I'm presently writing a rather...well, rather morbid story.

As the subject implies, I'm looking for ways you could remove a human eye from the socket. Preferrably with a knife, but that can easily be changed. I'm also in a setting where magic can be used, but it should be kept to the bare minimum and I'd rather not use it for this.

I tried googling several different things, but most just gave me anatomy of the human eye and contact lens instructions.

Thank you in advance. :D You people are bloody geniuses.
