Operation Dry Water targeting inebriated boaters

Indiana conservation officers will be out in force this weekend, looking for boaters under the influence.

DNR says that conservation officers will be on high alert for violators Friday through Sunday as part of Operation Dry Water. Although a year-long program, the operation will be in heightened effect this weekend.

In Indiana, it is illegal to operate a vessel on any body of water with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or higher.

Operation Dry Water is produced under a grant from the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund, administered by the U.S. Coast Guard.
