MN DNR increases water patrol for holiday weekend

Posted:

MINNESOTA (WXOW) - The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will be upping patrols to combat drunken boating as we near the Fourth of July holiday.

The increase is part of "Operation Dry Water", a DNR initiative meant to cut down on drunken and drug-related boating accidents and deaths.

More than 150 people were arrested in Minnesota for boating under the influence last year.

If you're operating a boat in Minnesota, the legal, blood alcohol limit is .08, the same limit that applies to drivers on the road.
