Approximately 500 pounds of hand grenades, mortars and aircraft bombs were hauled out of Lake Como -- roughly 50 feet from where Clooney's mansion backs up to the water. 

Clooney has owned the mansion -- with the hidden danger -- since 2002.

UPDATE: In an awesome statement, Clooney tells TMZ, "This is not the first bomb I've experienced."
