That is actually normal. Water is by-product of the combustion of gasoline. Here is a link on how the catalytic converter works.
And I can not seem to find that P code you have posted? But like I mentioned earlier and posted the earlier link, Volvo should at least do a free scan. And since this is a none turbo I believe just removing the throttle yourself and cleaning out the plate inside and out, remove the ETM fuse during this process. Once you put it back together I think you should be fine. I would recommend using the Volvo cleaner since it cleanes and lubricates the throttle plate. But the cleaner is expensive? You should be able to just use regular carb cleaner to clean it up as well. So try that and let me know how it goes. The fuse is in the engine compartment also. It will be fuse #7 10A
Good luck to you and let me know how that works out.
