Couple quick questions.... Does it have a sunroof? Has the windshield ever been replaced? Do you get any water drops from the AC vents when it is on high? Three things can be going on. A sunroof drain is clogged, causing the water to drain down the a-pillar and into the carpet. The Ac evaporator box drain is clogged, causing water to pool up in the evap box and overflow onto the carpet. You can also have a leak at the windshield that can be a result from an improper replacement at some point of the windshield. Check those three things and see where you stand.

You say it is water, so that would rule out the cooling system, unless by water you mean liquid. In that case it is important to first determine if this liquid is coolant or just plain water. Then refer to the advice of the above two posters.
