yes you can use water for short distance. go to the nearest auto parts store or department store or supermarket. pick up a gal of anti-freeze. mix that with a gal of water. open the rediator cap at the front of the car and add the mixed anti-freeze till just under the neck of the fill tube. start the engine and make sure the anti-freeze is at the same level. close the cap and fill the coolant container to the max mark.
hope you didn't burn the engine by over heating the engine.

If it is a bright green, it is probably antifreeze, the reservoir for that is usually around 1/2 to 1 gallon. If it is about a cup to pint size, it may be clutch fluid. It should smell about the same as brake fluid. Usually clear or brownish clear in color.

Testimonial: "Thanks, that should give me the answer, definitely not a brown colour, quite probably the coolant and thus all should be ok as this is full, both radi"
SOURCE: loss of power stearing and fluid
Basic visual troubleshooting is going to be required. If the fluid falls to the ground with the engine off, then the fluid reservior is the first suspect along with the return hose. If you only have this during engine on, the supply or pressure hose would be suspect. ARE all hoses and fitting installed and tight?

There a small diameter hoses that run the the nozzles for the front and rear windshield. More than likely, one is loose or cracked and is leaking. Do you have good spray on the windshield as you operate it? Is one weaker than the other? - If so, you definitely have a leak in a hose or nozzle.
Another common leak area is around the reservoir edge or near the pump. The pump commonly resides at the bottom of the reservoir.
Hope this helps!
