Efforts by a local group in Tacoma, Washington may delay the opening of the Northwest Detention Center. Issues related to the emergency plan rehearsal, cost recovery, and final health and welfare inspections and certifications remain. Potential fines may be incurred by CSC if there is any delay in the opening given the nature of the federal Leasing agreement. There also appears to be an issue with WA State Dept of Ecology which has initiated an independent examination of the standing water st the site.
CSC has also been reported to the City for illegally dumping construction materials on public land.
