BWI Enforcement

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and other law enforcement agencies are stepping up patrols this weekend to crackdown on boating while intoxicated. It is part of Operation Dry Water, a national campaign designed to reduce alcohol and drug-related accidents and fatalities.

                      According to DNR conservation officer Greg Salo, alcohol was a contributing factor last year in 33 percent of the deadly boating accidents in the state.
                       Salo added that operating a boat with a blood alcohol level of point-oh-eight or higher is against the law the same as driving a vehicle. Last year, 158 people were arrested for BWI in Minnesota.
