Texakoma, an oil company based out of Plano, is proposing a drilling site in north McAllen.

The well would begin near Main Street and Frontera Road, according to plans obtained by CBS 4 News. Drilling would run horizontally along 10th St., almost to Colonel Rowe boulevard.

Plans show a proposed new road from 10th St. to the site, which is currently surrounded by residential property.

The Lower Rio Grande Valley Sierra Club is trying to notify residents living in the area about the proposal.
