Operation Dry Water

Okoboji, IA (KICD)– Local officials will take part in the national Operation Dry Water campaign this weekend.

Steve Reighard with the Iowa DNR tells KICD News they will have extra enforcement out this weekend on the Iowa Great Lakes looking form impaired boaters.

The effects of alcohol can be intensified when combined with wind and wave action and an extended time spent in the sun. Operators may not think they are under the influence, but their judgment, reaction time, balance and vision indicate that they are.

In 2013, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and its partners contacted more than 426 vessels containing 1,613 boaters resulting in 90 citations or warnings as part of Operation Dry Water.
