Double bunks have been installed in every cell in the existing units at CBCC and will be double celled as needed. For now however, CBCC's population won't go past around 570 prisoners until the sewage treatment plant is expanded. Once that is done, around October 1, 1991, the population will be increased by up to 400 more prisoners.
As of July 1, 1991, CBCC will be designated a close custody facility making CBCC and the penitentiary at Walla Walla the only close custody prisons in the state.
Once the additional cellblocks and such are built and operational the number of DOC employees on the payroll will go from the current level of 300 to about 415.
