NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk police will be cracking down on boaters operating under the influence over the next three days as part of Operation Dry Water.

The Norwalk Police Department's Marine Unit will be patrolling with multiple vessels from Friday, June 27, through Sunday, June 29. Officers will be vigilant in locating boaters who are operating their vessels under the influence. In addition, the marine unit will also be conducting random safety checks.

Operation Dry Water is a nationwide initiative to enforce boating laws and spread awareness about the dangers of boating under the influence (BUI). Alcohol is the leading known contributor to recreational boater deaths in the country, according to police. In 2013, officers across the country contacted 144,044 recreational boaters and made 290 BUI arrests during Operation Dry Water.
