When hitting the water this holiday weekend, Ohio State Parks reminds everyone that boating and alcohol are a dangerous combination. Operation Dry Water puts a focus on staying sober while boating on Ohio waterways over the July 4th holiday weekend.
Operation Dry Water is a national year-round campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of boating under the influence. The 2021 awareness and enforcement three-day weekend will take place July 2-4. ODNR natural resource officers will be focusing their efforts this holiday weekend to keep impaired boaters off Ohio waterways. Officers will also be educating people on the importance of sober boating.
