I'd use a shop vac to pull the water out, then look around for how the water is getting in - ie around the trunk seal, tail light seals etc and fix that with some RTV or similar to get the seals to keep the water out. There's no drain since the water isn't supposed to be in there...

Thank you. I will probably add a drain. Will re check all seals, etc.
