The Deschutes County Commissioners just approved a land swap -- that allows the county and college to swap land to be further away from the former landfill.

 

Susan Ross is the Property and Facilities Director for Deschutes County.

 

"The reason we're doing this is there was a little bit of waste encroachment.  There are natural topography lines.  We're doing this exchange to make sure the debris is on our side of the property."

 

The land traded involves about 1.5 acres of the 56 acre property along Southwest Mt. Washington Drive and Century Drive.

 

It's hoped this swap will give the OSU property some distance from the former landfill and any potential soil contamination.
