The Douglas County Health Department shut down the popular indoor Coco Key Water Resort at 72nd and Grover Street in Omaha. Spokesperson Larry Figgs says the water park failed an inspection last Friday.
Figgs says, “There is standard inspection criteria that must be met. For example, water quality would be one of those items. This particular pool had several violations and we closed it.”
Problems that lead to the closure include sand at the bottom of the pool due to a filter problem, dirt and debris in the outdoor spa, problems with a flow meter and the resurfacing of the bottom of the Lazy River ride. Other repairs that need to be made include refilling first aid kits replace regulation signs and install and repair pool lighting.
Figgs says the resort has been given time to make the repairs and will be inspected before being allowed to reopen.
So far, there is no response from the management at the resort.
