TWRA reports......
The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will be participating in Operation Dry Water,this weekend. Operation Dry Water is a national weekend of Boating Under the Influence (BUI) awareness and enforcement campaign directed toward reducing alcohol and drug-related accidents and fatalities. The campaign is held annually near the Fourth of July holiday to give BUI enforcement high visibility during the peak boating season. Operation Dry Water was started in 2009, and has been a highly successful campaign drawing public attention to the dangers of boating under the influence. TWRA boating officers will saturate high traffic areas on reservoirs across the state. Along with the use of life jackets and other safety practices, officers want boaters to be aware of the effects and ramifications of alcohol use. The TWRA will be intensifying efforts to detect and apprehend boat operators who are operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs. In 2018, during Operation Dry Water, there were nine boating under the influence (BUI) arrests in Tennessee. Operating a boat with a Blood Alcohol Content of .08 percent or higher is illegal in Tennessee, the same as operating a motor vehicle. Alcohol use is the leading contributing factor in recreational boater deaths.
