6-28-13 operation dry water

The Fond du lac County Sheriff’s Office will be cracking down on drunken boaters this weekend.  The Sheriff’s office will be participating in Operation Dry Water Friday through Sunday, as part of a nationally coordinated effort to reduce accidents and fatalities caused by boating under the influence.  Sheriff’s captain Rick Olig says there seems to be a different mindset when it comes to drinking and boating compared to alcohol and automobiles.  U.S. Coast Guard data shows that alcohol is the primary contributing factor in recreational boating fatalities.
