PFLUGERVILLE, Texas -- Pflugerville officials say a barrel found in Lake Pflugerville earlier this week had been used for recreation.
City crews pulled the 55-gallon drum out of the lake on Monday June 17.
Although it had a label that warned it may contain hazardous material, tests showed it was safe.
Police have identified two adults in connection with the case. They told police that they filled more than one barrel with water from the lake.
Both could face felony criminal charges for illegal dumping.
