Indoor water park still closed after health, safety problems

ROCKFORD, Ill. (AP) — An indoor water park in northern Illinois is still closed months after a health department found health and safety violations.

The Rockford Register Star reports the Winnebago County Health Department closed CoCo Key at the Clock Tower Resort in August. The health department found pools with too little chlorine, a lack of certified pool operators and other problems.

Steve Hsu is president of Texas-based Beltway Hospitality, which manages the hotel and waterpark. He tells the Rockford newspaper the company is addressing the health and safety violations, but a malfunctioning temperature control system will cost $200,000 and take four months to replace.

The newspaper says the water park won’t be able to reopen without city and health department approval. Fines assessed total $250,000.
