Summary:: What if you were calculating the voltage potential for a dipole, but underwater?

I'm making a predictive model (in R programming) for the voltage potential at any point around a dipole. I need to be able to change parameters, one being the k constant.

V=( kpcosѲ)/(r^2).
Where V is voltage, k is the constant (N m^2/C^2), p is the dipole moment (p=qd), and r is pretty much the distance.
(attaching a page from textbook over this)

I need the k constant changed because I am simulating this underwater, with conductivity (μS/cm) taking the place of my k constant. Any ideas on how to approach this? Far fetched but, is there a way to convert μS to N m^2/C^2?
