NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- State boating officers will saturate high traffic areas through Sunday as part of a national safety initiative.
The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is participating in Operation Dry Water, which is designed to reduce alcohol and drug-related accidents and fatalities.
The focus will be on boating under the influence to give enforcement high visibility during the peak boating season. A TWRA news release said officers will be out in force night and day.
Operating a boat with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or higher is illegal in Tennessee, the same as operating a motor vehicle.
