Amistad Dam construction treaty

United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Mexican President Adolfo Lopez Mateos gather to sign an international treaty for the construction of Amistad Dam on Oct. 24, 1960.

The International Good Neighbor Council - Del Rio Chapter kicked off a month-long celebration commemorating the 60th anniversary of the treaty for the construction of Amistad Dam, with alternative celebrations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In celebration of the historic, cultural, tourist and economic impact of the dam to the community, IGNC President Elsa Reyes announced a series of activities throughout the month in efforts to celebrate the milestones of the last 60 years and invite the entire community to join in.
