Operation Dry Water To Run July 3-5

With another summer holiday
about to hit, the timing is perfect to roll out Operation Dry Water. The
campaign is a joint effort between the Fond du Lac County
Sheriff’s Office, the U.S. Coast Guard, Wisconsin DNR, the National Association
of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) and others, designed to educate
boaters about the dangers of boating under the influence of alcohol or drugs. 


Operation
Dry Water will run July 3-5, and boaters will see an increase in outreach,
education and enforcement surrounding boating under the influence. Alcohol use
continues to be the leading known contributing factor in recreational boater
deaths and a leading contributor in boating accidents.  The mission of Operation Dry Water is to
reduce the number of alcohol and drug-related incidents and fatalities on the
water. The Fond du Lac
County
Sheriff’s Office will
be out educating boaters on ways to stay safe while on the water and taking
enforcement action when necessary.
