6-28-14 fdl county sheriff's boat patrol out in force this weekend

The U.S. Coast Guard, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office Boat Patrol are coordinating efforts to step up enforcement of drunken boating as the July Fourth holiday approaches.  They're calling it Operation Dry Water. Beginning this weekend, law enforcement will be on the water randomly checking for intoxicated drivers. The legal blood alcohol limit for operating a boat is the same as driving a car — 0.08.  Sheriff’s Lieutenant Bill Tadych says drunken boating has consequences, including loss of boating and driving privileges and even jail time.
