The weather is warming up, and you are ready to head out to the lake with your friends. Maybe you are planning to drink alcohol while you are out for the day or weekend.

Do you know about the dangers of boating under the influence, or BUI? If not, you will now. Operation Dry Water, a campaign launched by the United States Coast Guard, is partnering with local law enforcement to raise awareness about the risks of BUI from June 30 to July 2. With warm weather and boating season in full gear, it is crucial for you to know about the dangers of consuming alcohol while operating a boat.
