Over the past two weeks, the City of McAllen received social media postings, photos, videos and texts of alarming activity taking place along the area of the new reservoir in South McAllen, sent in and posted by residents and attendees of the activities.  

McAllen city staff and administrators reviewed the video, photos and postings and then visited the site and grew concerned about the activities they saw there for many reasons, including:

  • Most obviously, the current climate of the COVID-19 pandemic and lack of social-distancing and masks by the participants and attendees, as well as the amount of vehicles and the crowd present, anywhere from dozens of vehicles to hundreds of people;
  • The sheer number of vehicles with absolutely no marshaling for the safety of the drivers, the vehicles and spectators;
  • Finally, the absolute unsafe and dangerous activity that was taking place on a City of McAllen owned property with absolutely no authorization.

For that reason, the City of McAllen has decided to barricade access to the property to prevent any further unauthorized and potentially dangerous activity taking place there.
