In a saucepan, make topping by combining water, sugar, brown sugar, butter, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir for 1 minute. Add the hot mixture to the peaches in the pan. Bake about 40 to 45 minutes, until the topping is browned and bubbly at the edges. Serve warm with ice cream.
