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 (http://bit.ly/1TYcanf) 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.
