DNR officers to crack down on drunk boating as part of Operation Dry Water


Thinking about going out on the boat this weekend and tossing back a six-pack of beer? Better reconsider that.

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) conservation officers and county sheriff's water patrol deputies will be out in force June 22-24 for Operation Dry Water. It is part of a nationwide effort to give boating under the influence (BUI) enforcement high visibility prior to the Fourth of July holiday and peak summer boating season.
