Operation Dry Water this Weekend

This weekend, from June 24th – June 26th, the Sheriff’s Marine Enforcement Detail will participate in Operation Dry Water (ODW). ODW is a joint program by the California Department of Boating and Waterways, the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and its surrounding agencies.

ODW puts local, state, and federal marine law enforcement officers on waterways throughout the country during the last weekend in June, in an effort to reduce the number of incidents involving boaters under the influence (BUI), which is a contributing factor in nearly 1 in 5 boating fatalities nationwide. In addition to increased patrols, officers involved in ODW will provide education about the hazards involved with BUI.

It is unlawful for boaters to operate a vessel with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher, and violators can be fined, arrested and/or have their vessels impounded. For more information regarding this upcoming event, visit www.operationdrywater.org.
