What is Operation Dry Water?
Operation Dry Water (ODW) is a year-round boating under the influence awareness and enforcement campaign. The mission of ODW is to reduce the number of alcohol-related accidents and fatalities through increased recreational boater awareness and by fostering a stronger and more visible deterrent to alcohol use on the water.
Operation Dry Water’s heightened awareness and enforcement three-day weekend takes place annually, the weekend prior the the July fourth, a holiday unfortunately known for drinking and boating, and deadly accidents.
The 2018 Operation Dry Water heightened awareness and enforcement weekend will take place nationally, June 29 to July 1, 2018. For more information visit Operation Dry Water website.
