BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Law enforcement personnel with the North Dakota Game and Fish Department are taking part in a national campaign this weekend aimed at reducing the number of people boating under the influence.

Operation Dry Water runs Friday through Sunday. Enforcement Division Operations Supervisor Jackie Lundstrom says more Game and Fish officers will be taking to state waters, especially in high-traffic areas. They’ll be getting help from some county and federal agencies.

Lundstrom says the goal is to raise awareness about the dangers of boating under the influence.

Operation Dry Water is coordinated by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators, in partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard and local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
