(PORTER) - A company that operates a northwestern Indiana water park authorities closed after 11 children suffered chemical burns says it hopes to pass a county health inspection so it can reopen in time for the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Jo Penney, a spokeswoman for Provo, Utah-based Seven Peaks Resorts, says she spoke Monday to Porter County Health Department Administrator Keith Letta and requested a full list of regulations the park in Porter, Indiana, must comply with in order to reopen.

Eleven children received chemical burns and a 12th suffered an eye irritation. Two other children had their collarbones broken while on a park waterslide.

An advertisement Seven Peaks Resorts placed in local newspapers says the children were burned after an equipment malfunction sent too much chlorine into Seven Peaks Waterpark's children's slide area.

The company says it's inspecting all of the water park's equipment and won't reopen until it passes a county compliance inspection.
