CEC is the for-profit, private prison company that operates the jail located in the Ector County courthouse. There is a smell of sewage in the county offices located underneath the jail that CEC operates. The plan to repair the sewage pipes would involve putting smoke inside the pipes and having CEC employees and building maintenance see where the smoke leaked so they could go about repairing the pipes.
CEC said they were willing to spend $15,000 on the project, which is estimated to cost between $3 and $4 million. This would include repairing the pipes and bringing the building up to American with Disabilities Act compliance.
