Operation Dry Water

Indiana Conservation Officers are urging everyone who enjoys boating or is planning to spend time on a boat this summer to be aware of the dangers of alcohol use on the water.

Jake Carlile, Media Contact for Indiana Conservation Officers is putting out the word about Operation Dry Water. He says the enforcement action is aimed at reducing alcohol-related accidents and deaths on the water. Carlile says that in 2012, there were 62 boat accidents in Indiana that resulted in 22 injuries and two deaths. So far in 2013, he says there have been 27 drownings in the state. Nationally, 17 percent of boating fatalities involve alcohol use.

Operation Dry Water is set to begin the weekend of June 28.
