It’s on the same lake where alleged drug cartel pirates attacked fishermen last month.
According to the Houston Chronicle, American police, federal agents and local disaster officials scrambled last month to prevent the alleged plot to blow up the dam on Falcon Lake.
Such an explosion would have sent billions of gallons of water into a region with millions of residents.
Members of the “Zetas” gang are said to be behind the plot.
Authorities say the plot may have been derailed thanks to increased law enforcement presence on both the American and Mexican side of the border.
