BEND, Ore. -

Workers next week will begin drilling test holes on the site of the future home of Oregon State University - Cascades as part of a geotechnical survey of the property. 

The survey is a standard step in assessing the property during the due diligence phase.  The results will provide information that will assist in the design of the future buildings.

Community members may see workers and equipment in the area.  All work will take place during business hours and workers anticipate any noise to be no louder than a dump truck.
