Found water in my oil could it be the turbo

Well , Yea it sucks, but I did a coolant system pressure test and it stayed at 19psi for 4 hours yesterday. So I am brainstorming the possibilities. The turbo I have is a Comp, it is water cooled so I am wondering can water get past some sort of seal and drain back into the oil pan? Has anyone EVER had this kind of problem with a water cooled turbo?
Thanks

The only way it could be the turbo is if the bearing cartridge is cracked, which is extremely rare.
