Operation Dry Water this weekend

Posted: Updated:

There will be extra law enforcement patrols this weekend for Operation Dry Water -- an effort to prevent drunk boating. 

According to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources , 71% of boating deaths last year involved alcohol, and some of the victims were innocent bystanders.

In addition to looking for drunk boaters, teams look to make sure boaters are following other rules of the water like having enough life jackets for each person on board.
