A state agency shut down a waterslide in Lapeer County because of safety issues at the park at 2051 Pero Lake Road.

The department of Licensing And Regulatory Affairs (LARA) issued a cease and desist order against Lapeer County Parks and Recreation for operating the Blue Spiral Waterslide at Torzewski County Park because of safety violation of Michigan's Carnival-Amusement Safety Act (CASA).

LARA's Bureau of Construction Codes (BCC) found one safety violation of the Act. It determined the ride is hazardous or unsafe because corroded steel connecting the stair stringers to the platforms and must be replaced.

The order prohibits Lapeer County Parks and Recreation from operating the waterslide until the violation is corrected to meet compliance with the Act and its promulgated rules, and before it may safely and legally be put back into service for public use.

LARA advises before getting on amusement rides this summer, check to see if the ride has a permit to operate.

"We inspect permitted carnival and amusement rides annually to help ensure safety. Any reports of unsafe or un-permitted rides receive our immediate attention to help keep the public safe," said Keith Lambert, director of LARA's Bureau of Construction Codes that oversees the state's carnival-amusement ride safety program.

The order also notifies Lapeer County Parks and Recreation that violation of the Act may lead to administrative, civil, and criminal sanctions.

A person who violates the Act is guilty of a misdemeanor and every subsequent day which continues the violation is a separate offense. Lapeer County Parks and Recreation was also informed that the matter was referred to local police and fire authorities, and the prosecuting attorney for review and possible action which may include criminal sanctions.
