No Drinking on the water

Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) will be participating in Operation Dry Water June 27-29, as part of a nationally coordinated effort to reduce the number of accidents and deaths related to boating under the influence (BUI).

During this three-day weekend, officers will be on the water reminding boaters about the dangers of boating under the influence and detecting boaters who are impaired.

Boating under the influence continues to be major problem nationwide. In fact, the leading factor in boater deaths is alcohol use while boating. By participating in Operation Dry Water, CPW is doing our part to keep recreational boaters safe and reduce the number of accidents and deaths related to alcohol or drug use.
