"Operation Dry Water" will crack down on drunk boaters

Posted by Unknown | Mar 12, 2014 | 0 Comments

Police officers in Wenatchee, Washington will be participating in “Operation Dry Water” from June 24-26. This operation will crack down on people who boat while under the influence of alcohol.

During the operation, officers will be patrolling the Washington-area lakes and oceans more often, as well as increasing penalties for boaters who are found to be under the influence of alcohol. In Washington, boaters who have a blood-alcohol content of 0.08% are considered legally drunk and can face fines and jail time.

According to the Marine Patrol Supervisor of Chelan County's Sheriff's Office, officers “intend to stop intoxicated boaters and to educate as many boaters as possible about the hazards of Boating Under the Influence (BUI).”

If you or someone you love has been charged with boating under the influence, please contact the Seattle BUI lawyers of the Cowan Kirk Gaston Law Firm at 866-822-1230.
