Water in the EGR?

Water in the EGR?
I've been having a problem running lean occasionally, so I decided to take the EGR valve off and put on a block off plate. I took off the valve and water came out...how does that happen?
I know there is a coolant line running to the EGR spacer, but that hasn't been in the car in years, so it can't be that.

RE: Water in the EGR?
Just a guess, but if you were not getting full flow of hot exhaust gasses through the valve it could be condensation like the condensation you get out of the tailpipe before the system gets up to full temperature.

I have a feeling that the valve was opening when it wasn't supposed to, so it may have been open when the car was off but hot...I really don't know.

LOUD EXHAUST IS FUN! AM I SHOUTING?
