If it only happens when you run through water you have damaged or lost the plastic water shield that stops much water from getting on the belt to make it slip. They commonly disappear when you hit a deep puddle, the impact tears them off. The squeal is the belt suddenly peeling out as it runs all the water off it to get normal traction again.
