a quick workaround would be to solvate one molecule of water within the WATBOX216.
You need just a one-line pdb file, e.g.

HETATM 1575 O HOH 402 0.000 0.000 0.000 1.00 1.00

Then use leap for the creation of a water box around that:
source leaprc.ff99
p = loadpdb water.pdb
solvatebox p WATBOX216 10.0 1.0
saveamberparm p water.crd
