There are many many places that repair water damaged iPhones. Just type "dropped iPhone in water" or "liquid damage to iPhone" in your Google search bar and a plethora of answers will come.
I personally dropped my phone in water, thought the world was over, and then did some reasearch and had my phone repaired for $50.
If you look around the net you will find places that charge anywhere from $80-$150 dollars. Some places have a minimum service charge and then also charge you for parts.
The best bet is to check around your area for a cellular repair store as it is cheaper than paying to ship your phone off and waiting 3 weeks to get it back.
Your warranty is ka-put so there's really no harm in allowing one of these places to try and fix it.

Liquid damage cannot be repaired by Apple, or usually by anyone at all. It's generally recommended to buy a new iPhone since liquid affects all electronic components, making it unlikely to be repaired.
Hope this helps,
