(Undated) - If you plan on taking the boat out onto the water this weekend, law enforcement will be out there with you.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says the state is taking part in Operation Dry Water on waterways throughout the state, such as Brookville Lake, Friday through Sunday.
DNR conservation officers will be paid overtime for the patrols thanks to a grant from the U.S. Coast Guard.
During last year's operation, Indiana conservation officers made 15 Boating While Intoxicated arrests, part of the 101 made during the 2009 boating season.
According to the most recent Coast Guard statistics, BUI remains the leading contributing factor in fatal boating accidents, with 17 percent of boating fatalities a direct result of alcohol or drug use.
