This weekend Indiana Conservation Officers will be out in force in lakes and rivers for a boating under the influence detection and enforcement campaign. Conservation Officer Jake Carlile says Operation Dry Water, June 28th through the 30th, is aimed at reducing the number of alcohol-related accidents and fatalities, and to foster a stronger and more visible deterrent to alcohol use on the water.
Nationally, 17-percent of boating fatalities involve alcohol use, and in 2012, there were 62 boating accidents in Indiana involving 22 injuries and two fatalities.
